Neal-
A big welcome to you
Correct me if I am wrong but my understanding is that frameworks can be composed of one or more patterns. Do frameworks evolve from patterns? Also, does your treatment of frameworks cover the underlying patterns?
I am not very well versed with frameworks (MVC is the only one being currently used at my workplace) and patterns and would definitely like to have a better grasp of them for more productive development.
Thanks for participating in the forum and thanks to Manning Publications for sponsoring your book for the promotions.
Arun.

Frameworks generally encompass patterns as best practices, but generally don't evolve from them. Patterns are the building blocks of good frameworks.
Yes, I always try to point out the underlying patterns at work inside the frameworks. For example, I describe the Command Design pattern and how to use it before showing how it applies in Struts. I'm a firm believer in patterns and try to find them wherever I can.

It is one of the keys to being an effective developer.
