"The authors' decision to include a real-life use case was a good strategy it illustrate the application of the pattern language." (Computing Reviews, February 15, 2008)

    • Includes a foreword by Martin Fowler
      • A must read for practitioners who want practical advice to develop a comprehensive language integrating patterns from key literature.
