Cocoa Architecture

[EDIT: Discontinued.]

Here’s a post worth reading over at M Cubed on comparative architectural strategies in Cocoa:

A while back I wrote a post on how I was pushing towards making my apps much more manageable, by separating my once monolithic app delegates and nibs into various view and window controllers. Yesterday Justin Williams wrote a post on his blog about Getting Started with Core Data, Bindings and NSViewController…

Justin’s post included a project he’d worked on, implementing core data tutorial application from CocoaDevCentral using several window and view controllers rather than one monolithic class and nib. The way he built his version was quite interesting, as it was differently to how I would have approached the task. As it was a relatively simple project, I thought it would be of benefit to some to provide an alternate way of building the same app. I don’t think there has been two Cocoa developers giving two different ways of implementing an entire app before…

No, if there has been, we’ve missed it. We’re always on the lookout for insightful articles about the use of Core Data, and this quite thoroughly qualifies on that count, but even if that’s not one of your main interests there’s still a lot of insight to be gained here!
