architecture question


I want to include my server class as a data member of another class (class Super).

do you recommend class Super to posses as data members both an instance of class Server and a data member that will hold array of active sockets?

or should Super class posses only an instance of class Server and class Server should hold the array of active sockets? if this is the better option, I don't understand how should class Super 'know' which socket it wants to read/ write to/ from.

thanks for your help

1. Wrong forum - there is a programming forum in General section. edit: it's below the General section actually
2. This is not an architecture issue, rather a data-entity relations design issue.
3. To stop ranting and answer your question finally : It depends. Is the Server class responsible of handling connections onall the sockets? If it is, than it must see the sockets so it must include them. If the Super class will be responsible of keeping track of active connections and sockets, and Servers will be created for each socket (or something similar) than the Server does not need to see all sockets.
