Chapter 23. Improving with More Design Patterns > Working with Contacts Import

23.1. Working with Contacts Import

Even though the specifications said that only one type of import would be specified, I've decided to be more safe than sorry. Currently, the requirement is to accept contact imports from the official company address book in the Microsoft Outlook program. However, after some of the employees see the ease with which this tool can be used, I am predicting that a need for other unofficial address book migrations will arise. As much as the company has tried to make a piece of software the official supported tool, there will always be users using other pieces of software (especially us in IT).

There are two parts to this process that remain tightly coupled. The first is the Adapter object that manipulates the Contact name information. The other is the object that builds an array of items to traverse from the file's contents. I'll look at each of these individually next.
