Hi there,
I need to decide which Design Pattetn to follow in my project, but I can't buy any book at the moment. Could anybody recomend me any site about the subject?
I've Googled it, but I thought that if someone had some experienced, it could lead to a better result.
Thanks!

You should download The Design Patterns Java Companion (a free PDF-version of the book).
Here's some resources regarding Java patterns:

Design Patterns aren't something you decide early on in a project. Their usage is primarily driven by the needs of the code, so you need to have a rough idea about the code to apply them accordingly.
Also keep in mind that you don't *need* to apply patterns and that your code doesn't necessarily get better when you do so. Every Design Pattern has a very specific purpose, and if you don't have the accompanied need, it will just make your code more complex.
Take a look at http://www.industriallogic.com/xp/refactoring/ and http://www.mindview.net/Books/TIPatterns/ for downloadable drafts of good pattern books.
http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?DesignPatterns is a good starting point for information on the web.
