Overview

Now on CD, this internationally acclaimed bestseller is more valuable than ever! Use the contents of the CD to create your own design documents and reusable components. The CD contains:

  • 23 patterns you can cut and paste into your own design documents
  • Sample code demonstrating pattern implementation
  • Complete Design Patterns content in standard HTML format, with numerous hyper-linked cross-references
  • Access through a standard web browser
  • Java-based dynamic search mechanism, enhancing online search capabilities
  • Graphical user environment, allowing ease of navigation

First published in 1995, this landmark work on object-oriented software design presents a catalog of simple and succinct solutions to common design problems. Created by four experienced designers, the 23 patterns contained herein have become an essential resource for anyone developing reusable object-oriented software. In response to reader demand, the complete text and pattern catalog are now available on CD-ROM.

The authors first describe what patterns are and how they help you in the design process. They then systematically name, explain, evaluate, and catalog recurring designs in object-oriented systems. All patterns are compiled from real-world examples and include code that demonstrates how they may be implemented in object-oriented programming languages such as C++ and Smalltalk. Readers who already own the book will want the CD to take advantage of its dynamic search mechanism and ready-to-install patterns.

The authors are internationally recognized experts in the object-oriented software field.

This seminal CD-ROM on software engineering patterns and reusability is based on Design Patterns Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software. The text is a classic in its field. Since it first appeared so long ago (1995), it has been discussed, commented upon and referenced in countless journals, magazine articles and related publications. Due to high demand and customer inquiries, the publisher has issued this publication in a modern format, not in the ancient linear style of Gutenberg, but in a hyperlinked, browsable format that foreshadows all publications to come.
