Structural type —— Appearance mode / Facade mode Facade Pattern


Facade mode is to encapsulate some complex processes into an interface for external users to use more simply .

For example, users use computers , The computer works : Power on, power off, restart, etc . Every operation has complicated logic , For example, you need to start first BIOS- Boot hard disk — Entry system - Initialize desktop, etc . For users , Just call the boot method .

Facade mode ( Facade Pattern) It's also called appearance mode , Is a more commonly used packaging mode ,

Provide a unified interface to a set of interfaces in a subsystem.Facade defines a higher-level interface that makes the subsystem easier to use.( It is required that the external and internal communication of a subsystem must be carried out through a unified object . The facade pattern provides a high-level interface , Makes the subsystem easier to use .)

Class diagram

  • Customer role (Client): The customer calls Facede To complete the function to be realized .
  • The role of the facade (Facade): It is called by the client role , And know the subsystems you're managing . The interior has ordered several function combinations according to the needs of the customer's role .
  • Subsystem role (SystemA/B/C): The function of the subsystem is realized . It's completely transparent to the customer's role . It can have interaction within the system , It can also be called by an external interface .

Sequence diagram

Sequence diagram (Sequence Diagram) Is a graph showing the interaction between objects , These objects are arranged in chronological order . The sequence diagram shows the objects involved in the interaction and the order of message interaction between them .

We can roughly browse the sequence diagram , If you are interested in it, you can go deep into it :

Code implementation

The facade Facade:

public class Computer
    public static final Logger LOGGER = Logger.getLogger(Computer.class);

    private CPU cpu;
    private Memory memory;
    private Disk disk;
    public Computer()
        cpu = new CPU();
        memory = new Memory();
        disk = new Disk();
    public void start()
    {"Computer start begin");
        memory.start();"Computer start end");

    public void shutDown()
    {"Computer shutDown begin");
        memory.shutDown();"Computer shutDown end...");

Client calls Client:

public class Client
    public static final Logger LOGGER = Logger.getLogger(Client.class);

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        Computer computer = new Computer();

For users , Use Client There's no need to care about the underlying details .

Use scenario example

A typical example :SLF4J Appearance patterns in

SLF4J It's a simple framework for log appearance patterns , Abstracts various logging frameworks, such as Logback、Log4j、Commons-logging and JDK Self contained logging Implementation interface . It allows users to use the logging framework they want when they deploy .

SLF4J No replacement for any logging framework , It's just the look and feel pattern of the standard logging framework . If you have a classpath other than SLF4J There's no more logging framework , Then the default state is to output log on the console .

Mybatis Appearance patterns in

see org.apache.ibatis.session.Configuration Class new Opening method

public class Configuration {
    public Executor newExecutor(Transaction transaction, ExecutorType executorType) {
        executorType = executorType == null ? defaultExecutorType : executorType;
        executorType = executorType == null ? ExecutorType.SIMPLE : executorType;
        Executor executor;
        if (ExecutorType.BATCH == executorType) {
          executor = new BatchExecutor(this, transaction);
        } else if (ExecutorType.REUSE == executorType) {
          executor = new ReuseExecutor(this, transaction);
        } else {
          executor = new SimpleExecutor(this, transaction);
        if (cacheEnabled) {
          executor = new CachingExecutor(executor);
        executor = (Executor) interceptorChain.pluginAll(executor);
        return executor;

    public ResultSetHandler newResultSetHandler(Executor executor, MappedStatement mappedStatement, RowBounds rowBounds, ParameterHandler parameterHandler,
          ResultHandler resultHandler, BoundSql boundSql) {
        ResultSetHandler resultSetHandler = new DefaultResultSetHandler(executor, mappedStatement, parameterHandler, resultHandler, boundSql, rowBounds);
        resultSetHandler = (ResultSetHandler) interceptorChain.pluginAll(resultSetHandler);
        return resultSetHandler;
    // ... Omit ...

Tomcat Appearance patterns in

org.apache.catalina.connector.Request and org.apache.catalina.connector.RequestFacade Both classes implement HttpServletRequest Interface

Advantages and disadvantages


  • Loose coupling : Decouple between client and subsystem , Make it easier to expand and maintain the module functions within the subsystem ;
  • Simple and easy to use : The client does not need to know the internal implementation of the subsystem at all , Or you don't need to know the composition of the subsystem at all , It just needs to follow Facade Class interaction .
  • Better division of access levels : Some methods are for out of system , Some methods are used interactively within the system . The subsystem concentrates the functions that are exposed to the outside world into the facade , In this way, the client can be used , It's a good way to hide the details inside the subsystem .


  • Without introducing Abstract appearance classes , Adding a new subsystem may need to modify the appearance class or the client's source code , Contrary to “ Opening and closing principle ”.
