Discussion. Frameworks are applications (or subsystems) with "holes" in them. Each framework specifies the infrastructure, superstructure, and flow of control for its "domain", and the client of the framework may: exercise the framework's default behavior "as is", extend selected pieces of the framework, or replace selected pieces.
The Factory Method pattern addresses the notion of "creation" in the context of frameworks. In this example, the framework knows WHEN a new document should be created, not WHAT kind of Document to create. The "placeholder" Application::CreateDocument() has been declared by the framework, and the client is expected to "fill in the blank" for his/her specific document(s). Then, when the client asks for Application::NewDocument(), the framework will subsequently call the client's MyApplication::CreateDocument().
