  • Builder design pattern is used to construct complex object step by step before building the final object.
  • The main advantages of Builder Pattern are as follows:
  • It provides clear separation between the construction and representation of an object.
  • It provides better control over construction process.
  • It supports to change the internal representation of objects.
