The OCP Java & exam objective states - "Design and create objects using a factory, and use factories from the API".

Does this pattern only include the "Factory Method" or "Simple Factory" pattern which includes creation of a factory method that return the exact subclass object based on the arguments passed to the method? Example -

Or it also includes Abstract Factory Pattern?

I think it is better to leave this chapter for last,so whenever you will buy any exam simulator, you will get some idea through questions on it.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
