|Type :||Be (Behavioral)|
|Intent :||Avoid coupling the sender of a request to its receiver by giving more than one object a chance to handle the request. Chain the receiving objects and pass the request along the chain until an object handles it.|
|Applicability :||Use Chain of Responsibility when :
- more than one object may handle a request, and the handler isn't known a priori. The handler should be ascertained automatically.
- you want to issue a request to one of several objects without specifying the receiver explicitly.
- the set of objects that can handle a request should be specified dynamically.
