  Entity Management Framework
  Submitted by



This COTD entry is a simple entity management framework I use in Shake-n-Bake Game Development Kit, my own personal game development toolkit. I primarily use it to manage dynamic objects in my game development projects. The framework is fairly straightforward and includes an EntityManager, abstract Entity class, and abstract EntityFactory class. EntityManage is a singleton that manages EntityFactory classes and active Entity classes. I opted to use entity factories to make it easier for me to load different types of factory implementations from DLLs or shared objects and plug them into the Entity Manager. This allows me to easily expand the different sorts of dynamic objects that appear in a game. Im sure many of you have similar systems. I figured Id just share this with the rest of you to share ideas and get some feedback. The code is released with BSD styled license, however if you do intent to use the code please drop me a note. Im always interested in knowing when my code is useful to someone other than myself. Enjoy!
