Abstract Class - 500 pts

I have a business layer dill where each class inherits a base class, the base class provides at the moment a proxy for a web service, it will also contain in the future other settings which can be used by the business layer classes, is this the best way to do it?

Or should I just create a shared class which exposes numerous methods

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

will the methods be implemented differently for each class?  If not, then one shared class for static methods seems to be the most efficient
Hello  rocky050371,
           I would suggest you to not to use the shared class as it may create a problem it is called again and again and you have to refresh it.

      The best way to do it is to have the base class insdtatntiated as said by you and use all the properties and methods inside that rather than shared one.
