Stable Abstraction Principle (SAP)

Updated Sep 15th, 2019 / 1 min read

About this...

The more stable a component is, the more abstract it should be

If a component is really stable, it's likely it's going to be serving more purposes for more groups of people, and for different problems.

In order to prevent a component from becoming too specific or rigid, we should primarily use abstract classes.

Abstract classes work well for defining the high-level policy and leaving room for various implementations of the low-level details.

Thanks for this Post, I believe this principle is one of the most important but underestimated principle in designing any applications.
