Flyweight

Flyweight en C++

Flyweight es un patrón de diseño estructural que permite a los programas soportar grandes cantidades de objetos manteniendo un bajo uso de memoria.

El patrón lo logra compartiendo partes del estado del objeto entre varios objetos. En otras palabras, el Flyweight ahorra memoria RAM guardando en caché la misma información utilizada por distintos objetos.

Uso del patrón en C++

Complejidad:

Popularidad:

Ejemplos de uso: El patrón Flyweight tiene un único propósito: minimizar el consumo de memoria. Si tu programa no tiene problemas de escasez de RAM, puedes ignorar este patrón por una temporada.

Identificación: El patrón Flyweight puede reconocerse por un método de creación que devuelve objetos guardados en caché en lugar de crear objetos nuevos.

Ejemplo conceptual

Este ejemplo ilustra la estructura del patrón de diseño Flyweight. Se centra en responder las siguientes preguntas:

  • ¿De qué clases se compone?
  • ¿Qué papeles juegan esas clases?
  • ¿De qué forma se relacionan los elementos del patrón?
