Does anyone have nice simple example of a factory that they have built themselves or found on the web? I cant see many decent examples...I was just thinking of something like a CarFactory / EngineProvider type example
Also, is there anything else that i require apart from VS2005, EntLib3 (Feb Release), Guidance Automation Extnesions and .Net 3.0?

Great point.

The Enterprise Library Team should provide a quickstart tutorial for the Application Block Software Factory just as they have provided quickstarts for everything else. Maybe it is forthcoming in the final release.

One might start to wonder how practical and easy-to-use the new Application Block Software Factory is for creating new Application Blocks and extending current ones if a quickstart tutorial has not been created :)

I added a workitem in the IssueTracker for it based on your suggestion:

Your requirements look good for using the Application Block Software Factory.
