recommended readings on patterns?

by E.Rick In reply to recommended readings on p ...

There are many good books on the subject, such as Analysis Patterns: Reusable Object Models by Martin Fowler or Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software, but my favorite is:

Applying UML and Patterns: An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis and Design by Craig Larman.

Larman's book focuses on design (and we all know that a strong design is the foundation of any effective solution). He does a great job of introducing responsibility assignment through the GRASP patterns (General Responsibility Assignment Software Patterns) and provides some good case studies and rationalization for choosing one pattern over another.

You might also checkout some of the articles at objectmentor.com (written by Robert Martin).

Also have a look at the Patterns homepage at http://hillside.net/patterns/patterns.html.

Good luck!

From the www.rational.com site:
The Unified Software Development Process, by Ivar Jacobson, Grady Booch, and James Rumbaugh,
is now available. Described as "the complete guide to the Unified Process from the original designers," the book is designed to guide developers through a more efficient way of developing software through proven best-practices and the power of the UML. Order your copy from Amazon.com, Computer Literacy, or Addison Wesley Longman.

There was a classical book called "Design Patterns -- Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software" by GOF. It is available online at

ftp://ftp.awl.com/cp/Gamma/dp.zip.gz
(5Mb approx.)

To my opinion, this is still the only good book to LEARNabout patterns. It doesn't cover the full topic, but it is very easy to read. And in fact I didn't find yet any source in Internet that covers all know patterns (I guess it is impossible now). So buy or download GOF, that's my advice.

There are also some extas from this book at

http://rampages.onramp.net/~huston/dp/patterns.html

Or you can search Cetus-Links cite

www.cetur-links.org

for likns to pattern catalogs. Also Protland pattern repository

http://c2.com/ppr/index.htmlcan help. Robert Martin has some articles where you can find more exotic patterns like "Stairway to Heaven", etc. Go to

www.objectmentor.com/base.asp?id=40

for Robert's papers.

All of the references listed are excellent, perhaps the original pattern's book would be:

Plans, Patterns and Strategies by Peter Coad
