[DRAFT] FlyWeight Design Pattern

Scope

In this wiki, I will walk you around the places in which FlyWeight design pattern is used.

Introduction

Flyweight design pattern is used when we are creating a large number of similar objects. The logic behind this design pattern is to group all similar properties and reduce memory usage.

Objects created may have some properties common across all objects. These properties are known as intrinsic properties. We can create one model object which has all the common properties and share it across all objects. The properties which are unique to each object is known as extrinsic properites.
