Pattern Languages of Program Design 3

Front Cover
Addison-Wesley, 1998 - Computers - 632 pages

Patterns remain one of the most important new technologies contributing to software engineering, system design, and development. All indications are that patterns will continue to grow in significance as more and more developers rely on reusable design patterns to help them achieve quick, cost-effective delivery of applications. This volume is a collection of the current best practices and trends in the patterns community. The patterns contained in this book provide effective, tested, and versatile software design solutions for developers in all domains, institutions, and organizations.

The third in a series of books documenting patterns for professional software developers, this volume continues the tradition of informational excellence established by the first two volumes. Pattern Languages of Program Design 3 differs from the previous two volumes in that it includes international submissions, gathering the best papers from both PloP '96 and EuroPLoP '96. It covers a wide range of pattern-related subjects, and patterns are arranged by topic so software engineers can easily select those of greatest relevance to their needs and application domains. This book goes beyond teaching software engineers that design patterns are powerful tools to impart understanding--it shows where and when patterns are best applied.
