Builder

Difficulty-Intermediate Gang Of Four Java Creational

Intent

Separate the construction of a complex object from its representation so that the same construction process can create different representations.

alt text

Applicability

Use the Builder pattern when

  • the algorithm for creating a complex object should be independent of the parts that make up the object and how they're assembled
  • the construction process must allow different representations for the object that's constructed
