Of course, you can use patterns to express solutions to architecture problems.

Bilal,
My apologies. I thought I had, and while I found I had posted that quoted you, I didn't find my response. I must have mistyped something. Let me try this one again.
We believe that the organizational principles are complete. In our paper in Computer in which we first widely published the model, we had a 6th principle that focused on risk, but we realized the management of risk was at the core of all the principles, and so we folded it back in. We've tested the model with multiple case studies, and by validating with experts such as Grady Booch and Robert Charette.
However, if there is a principle that you think is missing, I would be interested to hear your thought on that.

Folks,
The question you cite has not even been posted 24 hours yet, and this thread has been up all week. So on a per/day basis the posting rates are comparable.

can explain me why this thread has a record number of posts and nobody shows up to answer Dave's question in http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum9/HTML/000822.html?? Just VERY curious

While I'm not Carl, I'll take a stab at your other question. Obviously, architects and managers have much more at stake, and much more control over some of the issues I've mentioned. However, I think that folks who today are "just programmers" today need to understand organizational issues if they want to extend their influence beyond the code they are directly writing.

after reading your review in the Bunkhouse Design Patterns UML and Refactoring, I would like to know if this book is useful just for programmer (I am not inside mentioned positions and prefer blowing up the current experience)?

I understand that XML has a large impact on software architecture. Does your book has some coverage on this aspect ?
Thanks,

ruilin, i dont think the book has anything on XML.
As i am not the author... but the book is on Organizational Principles and Patterns i doubt it the book has it.
Organizational Principles and Patterns is pretty big topics already. As the author has said... its focus on
Principles not implement.
Wilfried, i think this fourm is always alive and active!! hehehee
sometimes!!

Good luck all on the book promotion and thanks David (author).
Its good to have you here.!!!
and thanks Javaranch
