All of the GoF patterns, and many more of the existing design patterns, are so general that they are applicable to all kinds of tiers you could imagine.

For J2EE stuff, the book linked above is a great place to start. You can get a taste for the Sun patterns before you spring for the book at Sun:

http://java.sun.com/blueprints/patterns/catalog.html

I gotta get "Patterns of Enterprise Architecture" one day myself: http://www.martinfowler.com/books.html. Here's one of his Thoughtworks buddies on integration and messaging: http://www.eaipatterns.com/

There are plenty of other resources. I just stumbled across these on Google:

https://bpcatalog.dev.java.net/nonav/solutions.html
https://blueprints.dev.java.net/

Have fun, let us know which of these catch your fancy.
