Factory Method Design Pattern
Publication: C++ Builder Developer's Journal Issue: Volume 8, Number 11, November 2004
In this 3 page article I consolidate the information provided in my 2 introductory articles on design patterns and present the reader with their first pattern, the Factory Method.
In my previous two articles I introduced the base classes that we’ll use for exploring various Design Patterns. If you haven't already done so, I would recommend reading those two articles  before continuing with this one. The articles provide necessary background information on the design and development of the classes, and on how they’ll be used to implement various patterns.
