How do I share main() behavior across multiple classes?

Posted by Michael Pelz-Sherman on December 27, 2000 at 7:30 PM

I need to create a set of Java applications that share the same basic behavior.

My first notion was to create an abstract class, write its "main()" method to call a bunch of "abstract" methods which I could then override in subclasses. The problem is, how to I know which class to tell main() to instantiate?

Perhaps I'm barking up the wrong tree and sharing main() behavior is the wrong approach.

Any pointers would be much appreciated!
