Factoring in the FactoriesPosted: 2012-10-08
Been a while since I’ve just worked on some coding. Kickstarter preparation has been absorbing my time.
Anyway, I want to build a model construction utility, and I want to be able to save the model setup state (not necessarily the final models, but them too) in a package file. However, I don’t want to (be required to) include the whole Uzi.Ikosa assembly where the packaging code currently resides.
Thusly, I begin a refactor process into a new assembly. Untangling the dependencies will be “fun”, since I’ve got a helper class to load related parts as their strongly typed object instance.
Problem is all those classes are defined in the assembly I’m abstracting the code away from. Hence, a factory pattern and a registration mechanism (complete with [static, for now] factory registry).
