Decorator Design Pattern in Java

By | July 4, 2020

In this post, We will talk and learn about the Decorator Design Pattern in Java.

  • Decorator design pattern comes under structural design patterns.
  • Decorator design pattern is used to modify the functionality of an object at runtime. At the same time, other instances of the same class will not be affected by this, so individual object gets the modified behavior.
  • This Pattern provides a wrapper to the existing class.
  • Decorator design pattern uses abstract classes or interfaces with the composition to implement the wrapper.
  • The decorator design pattern is helpful in providing runtime modification abilities and hence more flexible. It’s easy to maintain and extend when the number of choices are more.
