What is better from an OM perspective: having a separate Driver class with just a Main function which will instantiate the Worker class (say Archiver), or integrating this Main function into the Worker class (say Archive())? As for the second option, if the Archive main function is static, how does it instantiate the class it's part of?

Thanks

I would think the first approach is best as it seperates concerns, keeping the main function in a seperate class would be a more neater and maintainable solution. However, if you do go for your second idea, then its just a simple case of creating an object of the current class...

public class Archive
{
    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        Archive a = new Archive(...);
        a.SomeMethod();
   }

    public Archive(...)
    {
    }

    public void SomeMethod()
    {
        ...
    }
}
