Hi all,
I am not able to appreciate the difference between the factory pattern and abstract factory pattern.Both seem to do the same thing except that the abstract factory returns a group of related objects.
Is there any distinguishing feature that sets apart the factory from the abstract factory in terms of where they have to be applied.
Thanks in advance
william

A search on Abstract Factory in this forum should give you some discussions on exactly this subject.
