Applied Java Patterns

Increasingly, Java developers are recognizing the value of patterns in helping to build more robust, effective software systems -- but most books on patterns are either generic or focused on other languages. Now, the creators of Sun's own course on Java patterns have written the definitive book for working developers. Replete with working code, this book offers practical help with all types of patterns, in every facet of development -- from individual...

Good as a reference and refresher

For the developer LEARNING Patterns, the Heads First book seems the most popular. But this is essential as a reference book. Premier examples, plus it reads more like a book and less like a math book (as most coding books are). I open this up from time to time to keep those patterns not used often fresh in my mind to ensure I will realize when one is needed. This is the first book that I go to for anything patterns, and I have a copy at work because my coworkers also come to this book when they need a refresher or reference.

GoF and more for JAVA

Just shortly: Book contains all patterns from GoF book. Patterns are explained in more appropriate way and more closer to Java. Also examples are pretty simple and easy to understand. So the simplicity would be the best about this book.I also like that the the second part of the book: "Patterns in the Java Programming Language" where the author covers extra patterns used in J2EE which I find very usefull !I would like to see a CD or FD attached on the end of the book, although full code samples are also good (you don't need PC while reading the book). There is a web site to download examples and images and all fits on one single cheap floppy.Anyway the best pattern book for Java I saw. I have many Pattern eBooks, but all of them are either too simple (can't really learn how to use the pattern), or too complicated (e.g. GoF is complicated for me). So this remains the best for me.

Excellent, Easy to Understand

This book is a thorough, insightful work on the use of patterns in Java programming. What's more, the authors clearly have a sense of humor and a desire to make this book easy to read and understand. I find myself turning to this book again and again. It is the most useful computer book I own.

Great book on design patterns from a Java perspective

I've been waiting a long time for a Java equivalent to the GOF book on patterns. At last my wait is over. It has very good explanations of the 23 patterns found in GOF but also there are chapters on system patterns and patterns found within the JDK which I've found very useful.....

the best one on the market

I have waited for a good pattern book in jave for years. This is the best on the market so far. Because the big picture has been explained very well in GoF book (new book authors, please don't repeat it in other books;-), I was looking for the low-level implementation oriented book. There are several "middle-level" books (copied big picture and no solid/complete code - please do not show me some snipets, I am not that smart ;-)Up 1) this book contains a complete java implementation for each pattern 2) it also contains some patterns used in java itself, which is a great plus!Down,1) I cannot find a website to download the samples, I may be wrong, but I don't think the book points to a working website either by today 1/15/2002.2) Some typo need to be correct but they are obvious. Readers should have no problems with them.
