Remarks

The IGPFunctionFactory is a logical grouping of tools. It is registered into the component category CATID_GPFunctionFactories.

 

The function factory is responsible for handing out the function name objects for each geoprocessing function, in other words it makes a geoprocessing tool accessible. It is required when building geoprocessing functions tools. For more information about using the IGPFuctionFactory refer to the technical document Building Geoprocessing Function Tools.
