Creational Patterns

Very handy. They are responsible for creating objects by hiding the creation code in a black box. That leads to many benefits: no duplicated creation code, less code clutter, you don’t have to know how the objects are being created, just who. Patterns in this group are:

  • Factory Method Pattern
  • Abstract Factory Pattern
  • Builder Pattern
  • Singleton Pattern
  • Prototype Pattern
