Differences between Abstract Factory / Builder / Adapter

When it comes to patterns, it’s important to know the differences. Sometimes you have to name a class and you tend to call it “a X-builder”, or a “X-Generator”. But… are you sure you gave it the correct name?

It’s important to name things properly in our projects. From variables, to methods and classes. It REALLY matters. Even more when you are part of a team. When we are implementing a pattern we should give every entity the right now to avoid ambiguity.

In this particular case, those patterns may seem to do similar things, but they don’t. So, how to identify each one?


I hope somebody is kind enough to point out the differences between them. Come on, participate! Comments are welcome.
