comment Can I use Dependency Injection without breaking Encapsulation?
@Euphoric: That's correct. This is not the command pattern. As a matter of fact, the OP follows a different pattern: the command/handler pattern.

comment How to improve enterprise level application that consists of only static methods
I'm a fan of the Validation Application Block. I like the flexibility. It allows many scenario’s that aren't possible with Data Annotations. However, it’s not an easy framework, that's for sure.

Please note that Enterprise Library is much more than a logging framework (it has blocks for validation, caching, cryptography, exception handling, etc). Because of this fact, you can't advice to ditch EL in favor of log4net, since that framework is solely for logging.

comment Is the potential performance hit from LINQ worth it for improved readability?
Good point. As with all new technologies, LINQ can be used wrong and in that case it can cause performance problems, but not because of LINQ but because of its abuse.

I am a LINQ freak, use it all the time, and I never really experienced a situation where LINQ to Objects was too slow for me (compared to LINQ to SQL and especially Entity Framework). LINQ to Objects is highly optimized and has for instance special optimization while querying arrays.
