Prototype

Prototype en Python

Prototype es un patrón de diseño creacional que permite la clonación de objetos, incluso los complejos, sin acoplarse a sus clases específicas.

Todas las clases prototipo deben tener una interfaz común que haga posible copiar objetos incluso si sus clases concretas son desconocidas. Los objetos prototipo pueden producir copias completas, ya que los objetos de la misma clase pueden acceder a los campos privados de los demás.

Uso del patrón en Python

Complejidad:

Popularidad:

Ejemplos de uso: El patrón Prototype está disponible en Python listo para usarse con una interfaz Cloneable.

Identificación: El prototipo puede reconocerse fácilmente por un método clone o copy, etc.

Ejemplo conceptual

Este ejemplo ilustra la estructura del patrón de diseño Prototype. 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?

Adding elements to `shallow_copied_component`'s some_list_of_objects adds it to `component`'s some_list_of_objects.
Changing objects in the `component`'s some_list_of_objects changes that object in `shallow_copied_component`'s some_list_of_objects.
Adding elements to `deep_copied_component`'s some_list_of_objects doesn't add it to `component`'s some_list_of_objects.
Changing objects in the `component`'s some_list_of_objects doesn't change that object in `deep_copied_component`'s some_list_of_objects.

^^ This shows that deepcopied objects contain same reference, they are not cloned repeatedly.
