@gnat How are people guessing. From your link quote: You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. and that's exactly what's happening here

You say that but could you give an example using the Bar class

This could work, you need to final the fields @David. Bar shouldn't extend Location though that doesn't make sense. Perhaps Bar extends BaseBar and BarPreview extends BaseBar these names don't really sound too good either though, I was hoping for something more elegant

I can see how the HawaiianPizzaBuilder works because the values it needs are hardcoded. However how can you use this pattern if the values are retrieved and passed to a constructor? The HawaiianPizzaBuilder would still have all the getters that the SpicyPizzaBuilder has so null is possible. Unless you combine this with @Jarrods Null Object Pattern. A code example with Bar would get your point across

what does the acronym DTO stand for? I don't quite get what your saying could you put it into a worked example please. fyi The data comes from a server so once either form of this class is 'hydrated' the fields won't need to be changed, just used to display on the UI
