Hi all
Can you please tell me where i can find EXPLAINED UML diagrams of design patterns? Most books just have the diagram and not explain it too good...
This is in order to learn it, so I can identify a pattern that�s related to the diagram. As I understood - there are some question asking you to identify.
Has anyone actually seen such questions in Part 1? If so, how many questions like this do you get in the exam?
Thanks

I would recommend these books to begin with. Others may have a different list.
1: GoF
2: Applied JAVA Patterns Stephen Stelting , Olav Maassen
3: Refactoring Martin Fowler

For the SCEA additional books may be required especially for EJB,Web Services etc.

J2EE Web Services by Richard Monson-Haefel
isn't a patterns book but has been highly recommended by Kyle Brown in the Book Review forum.
Books recommended by Martin Fowler has excellent reviews. A must for any budding architect, IMHO even if they are not explicit reference books for the SCEA.

Messing, study guide by allen bambara is not much recommended book. But it does contain good java examples of design patterns. Alas, corresponding UMLs are not neat but worth having a look.

Hi Nishant Anshul
I have the SCEA study guide by Bambara. This is exactly the one that I didn't understand. It just gives you the UML diagram of the design pattern, without any explanation on it.. I.E : "Here we can see the N interface that is used to.. and the A class is implementing it to form a ... " Text explanation of the diagram. Most I understand - but some seems to sophisticated implementation of the pattern, and I cant understand why.

Hello Messing,
I found "Design Patterns Java Workbook" by Steven John Metsker very helpful in understanding the GOF patterns, then Bamabara's text actually becomes quite helpful. The URL on Amazon is as follows:

Regards.

What would be the differences between Mark Cade's book and Bambera's ?
Thanks.

Cade's book provides summaries of the patterns along with the UML diagrams, whereas Bamabara's text adds short code examples and compares it to existing J2SE and J2EE patterns.
