Here is an online rsource for GOF(Gang of Four) patterns with Java Examples by James W Cooper
GOF is bible for patterns and for java buffs this link would help tremendously to get a basic idea about the patterns available. I strongly believe that this should be included in the resources list.
Here is another Patterns link.
Well, these are general patterns not J2EE patterns but all the patterns available are in some or other way linked to these basic patterns.
Please go through the link and cast your vote for my proposal.

I have read his book. I had downloaded it after I had first read the GOF Design Patterns book. I found this book to helpful, in that it opened my ability to learn patterns, because the examples are in Java.
While this book didn't exactly teach me to fully understand the patterns, it did open my eyes in many ways.
One downfall of this book is it's chapters on Swing, which really has nothing to do with patterns, except as examples. I think Cooper got off on a tangent to "Help" in future explanations, but it never materialized.
But still a good starting point if you can't understnad the GOF book, which is common. I had lots of problems the first three readings. OK, I still have some problems, but that doesn't mean I should attend AA meetings. I mean I got this handled. It won't destroy me.
OK back to the real world
