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.

This book was written to provide software engineers, system architects, and software developers a timeless reference and guide on over 60 design patterns. While the examples are provided in Java, the explanations and examples are programming language-agnostic.

In addition to covering behavioral, creational, structural, architectural, functional, and reactive design patterns, this book provides the reader with an introduction to the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and Object-Oriented Programming (OOP). UML is covered with specific focus on behavioral and structural diagrams, as they are used throughout the book to provide a deeper understanding of the featured design-pattern implementations. OOP is covered to provide the reader with an overview or refresher, depending on their experience. Understanding OOP principles is key to understanding how to program in Java.
