Detailed Description

Factory interface for facilitating the usage of a platform-specific mitk::RenderingManager instance.

This class provides an interface for creating the required singleton instance of RenderingManager. Concrete platform-specific subclasses should be instantiated once during startup of the framework (e.g. as a static instance). Their constructor then merely has to call mitk::RenderingManager::SetFactory().

Note
Instead of using an external class for the manager instantiation, the factory mechanism could be integrated into the RenderingManager (and its subclasses) itself. However, this would make the framework specific instantiation more complicated. Simply creating a static instance somewhere would not work since RenderingManager derives from itk::Object, which itself depends on the initialization of static members (which is problematic since the order of static member initializations cannot easily be controlled).
