The Resource Sharing Pattern is used to share resources between objects without requiring detailed knowledge of the resource. Related resources share common access attributes thereby creating simple associations.
A hierarchical simulation environment contains resources required by other components as well as test writers. A consistent mechanism for sharing resources promotes horizontal and vertical reuse. A simple mechanism that requires no knowledge of the simulation environment hierarchy eases the task of test and stimulus creation.
The Resource Sharing Pattern can be used when reusing verification components. It can also be used to reduce the overhead of adding test writers to a project.
