This is a very good article. It does a great job at explaining a service locator implementation.

However, I'm of the following opinion:

"the problem with Service Locator is that it hides a class' dependencies, causing run-time errors instead of compile-time errors, as well as making the code more difficult to maintain because it becomes unclear when you would be introducing a breaking change."
