From your snippet it isn't really clear why you need two classes in the first place. I also expect real names for the classes would make things more obvious.


It was a quick and dirty example. I'll try to do better. Smile | :)

I've been doing iPhone programming, and using the Model/View/Controller pattern (or at least one variation of it) is encouraged by the architecture. Say we have a model.

class Model
{
public:
    // Stuff...
};


The controller uses the model, but should it also be responsible for creating it? Assume for the sake of argument that an instance of the model isn't used any where else besides the controller class. I guess it then becomes academic, but I seem to remember reading some where that objects shouldn't use the objects they create. I can't remember why or where I read that.

I was wondering if this:

class Controller
{
public:
    Controller(Model *model)
    {
        this->model = model
    }
};


Is better than this:

class Controller
{
public:
    Controller()
    {
        this->model = new Model();
    }
};


Maybe the reasoning as to why the first approach is better is that if we use polymorphism, we can switch out which model is used by the Controller; we can't do that in the second example without changing the Controller class.

Also, maybe as a general rule factory code should be seperate from the rest of the code?
