I have read lots of Books on Design Patterns.Now i would like to practice the same in real world example.Does anyone know any resource or site from where we would get any Scenario and based on that we would design.

Here is a scenario for you to work on.

Create a travel reservation system that enables users to search existing reservations, make reservations and delete reservations. Create a Swing-based GUI for the users to access the application. Create an XML-based database file to hold reservation data.

You should be able to implement the following design patterns in your design.

Business Delegate
Data Access Object
Business Object
Transfer Object

Good luck! ... keep us posted on your progress.

You might want to take a look at the Design Patterns Java Workbook.

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
