Chain of Responsibility in Swift
Chain of Responsibility is behavioral design pattern that allows passing request along the chain of potential handlers until one of them handles request.
The pattern allows multiple objects to handle the request without coupling sender class to the concrete classes of the receivers. The chain can be composed dynamically at runtime with any handler that follows a standard handler interface.
Usage of the pattern in Swift
Usage examples: The Chain of Responsibility pattern isn’t a frequent guest in a Swift program since it’s only relevant when code operates with chains of objects.
Identification: The pattern is recognizable by behavioral methods of one group of objects that indirectly call the same methods in other objects, while all the objects follow the common interface.
