Hands-On Design Patterns with Java

2 (1)
By: Dr. Edward Lavieri

Overview of this book

Java design patterns are reusable and proven solutions to software design problems. This book covers over 60 battle-tested design patterns used by developers to create functional, reusable, and flexible software. Hands-On Design Patterns with Java starts with an introduction to the Unified Modeling Language (UML), and delves into class and object diagrams with the help of detailed examples. You'll study concepts and approaches to object-oriented programming (OOP) and OOP design patterns to build robust applications. As you advance, you'll explore the categories of GOF design patterns, such as behavioral, creational, and structural, that help you improve code readability and enable large-scale reuse of software. You’ll also discover how to work effectively with microservices and serverless architectures by using cloud design patterns, each of which is thoroughly explained and accompanied by real-world programming solutions. By the end of the book, you’ll be able to speed up your software development process using the right design patterns, and you’ll be comfortable working on scalable and maintainable projects of any size.

Introducing architectural patterns

Traditional design patterns, which have been categorized as behavioral, creational, and structural, remain valid in modern programming, including with Java. Architectural patterns differ from design patterns in scope—architectural patterns, as you might surmise from its name, has a broader scope. Generally speaking, architectural patterns take a holistic view of systems and group components for illustrative purposes. The visual depiction of architectural patterns does not use UML class diagrams like the aforementioned design patterns do. Instead, a nonprescriptive approach is taken for visually documenting architectural patterns.

Architectural patterns work at the system level, and it is common for design to be dropped from the architectural design pattern title. Regardless of which label is used, architectural patterns or architectural...
