Hands-On Design Patterns with Java

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.

In this chapter, we looked at eight architectural patterns—blackboard, broker, client-server, event-driven, extract-transform-load, layered, master–slave, and microkernel. We learned that architectural patterns describe the design of an entire system or group of system components. This chapter explained how architectural patterns take a holistic view of systems and group components for illustrative purposes. In addition, the visual depiction of architectural patterns do not use UML class diagrams, as the behavioral, creational, and structural design patterns do. Instead, a nonprescriptive approach is taken for visually documenting architectural patterns. Understanding how to select and implement these patterns strengthens your ability to design and develop efficient software systems.

In the next chapter, we will continue our exploration of the architectural...
