Hi ranchers,
I am very confused regarding which book to refer for Design pattern
I am preparing for scea beta exam... and one more book is added in objects of scea 5, other than corej2eepatterns...
so we have to have read the whole book to get full grasp. of the subject ?

I do have knowledge about some patterns around 7-8, but not much...

any short notes avaiable for quick learning ..as time is short

regards
amit

Design Patterns by the "Gang of Four" (Erich Gamma, Richard Helm, Ralph Johnson, and John Vlissides) is considered the classic design patterns book. Note: this book is not J2EE nor Java specific, but rather an attempt to identify commons patterns in software engineering.

There are other books that have specific J2EE design patterns.

I have not yet taken the test, but I believe that you will need to be familiar with the GoF patterns and with J2EE design patterns.

Use "Head First Design Patterns" written by one of the founder of http://www.javaranch.com/ (the one you are using currently )
