Template Design Pattern in Java

By | July 5, 2020

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

Key Points About Template Design Pattern :

  • Template Design Pattern is a behavioral design pattern. Template Method design pattern is used to create a method stub and that differs some of the steps of implementation to the subclasses.
  • Template Design Pattern defines the Execution Order to execute an algorithm and it can provide a default implementation that might be common for all or some of the subclasses.
  • The template method should consist of certain steps of an algorithm whose order is fixed and for some of the methods, an implementation might differ from base class to subclass. If we want some of the method should not be overridden by subclasses then we can make those template methods final

Template Design Pattern in JDK & Framework:

  • Most of the non-abstract methods of java.util.AbstractList, java.util.AbstractSet and java.util.AbstractMap.
  • servlet.http.HttpServlet all of the action methods ( doXXX()) methods by default sends an HTTP 405 “Method Not Allowed” error to the response. So you’re free to implement none or any of them.
  • Below are the few of Sprig framework classes which uses Method Template design pattern
    • JdbcTemplate, HibernateTemplate, JmsTemplate, RestTemplate, SimpleJdbcTemplate,TransactionTemplate

Now Let’s move towards the implementation of the Template Design Pattern.

Below is the complete source code:
