Increasingly, programmers are recognizing the value of design patterns in developing more robust, scalable, reliable, and maintainable applications. In Appliedjava Patterns, Sun Microsystems experts Stephen Stelting and Olav Maassen clearly explain pattern-based techniques and demonstrate pattern use for a variety of business systems.
After briefiy reviewing the fundamentals of design patterns, the authors describe how they can be applied effectively to the Java platform and present proven techniques for all types of patterns, from system architecture to single classes. Next, they provide a pattern catalog, organized into four major categories-the creational, structural, behavioral, and system patterns. In addition, they identify patterns in the core Java APIs and present techniques for pattern use in distributed development.
Applied Java Patterns also features a section on pattern use in systems built with J2EE and Jini technologies and coverage of the servlet, JSP, and EJB APIs.
For experienced developers, this accessible and authoritative guide gives you everything you need to make the most of patterns and the Java platform.
