I read about Factory method pattern and about Abstract Factory pattern, but once I read that if a Factory with static factory methods will be called static Factory method.
Is there a pattern called static Factory method pattern or it is just modification for the original Factory pattern itself?
The link below is about it:
web page
N.B. static Factory method pattern could be used to connect either to local connection or remote connection.

To Be honest, whether the methods are static or not static, I always call it a Factory class.
