I have an object that takes in data and spits out a transformed output, called
I also have two parsers,
IParserB. These parsers transform external data (in format dataA and dataB respectively) to a format usable by my
I want to create 2 systems, one that works with dataA and one that works with dataB. They will allow the user to enter data and match it to the right plugins/implementations and transform the data to outData.
I want to write these traffic cops myself, but have other people provide the parsers and baseitem logic, and and as such am implementing these items as plugins (hence the use of interfaces). Other programmers can choose to implement 1 or both parsers.
Q: How should I structure the way base items and parsers are associated, stored, and loaded into each of my programs?
What I've Tried:
Initially I though there should be a different dll for each of my 2 traffic cops, that each have a parser and baseitem in them. However, the duplication of baseitem logic doesn't seem right (especially if the base item logic changes).
I then thought the base items could all have their own dll, and then somehow associate parsers and baseitems (guids?), but I don't know if implementing the overhead id/association is adding too much complexion.
