There are tons of design patterns material over the internet.

Which is probably the most comprehensive source of design patterns that includes good examples in Java for each of the design patterns.

Please let me know....

Although it doesn't contain java examples, one of the best resources is Design Patterns by the gang of four.
But when you say "for each of the design patterns" do you realise that design patterns are just generic solutions for common problems and thus not a limited set?

I like the Pattern-Oriƫnted Software Architecture volumes, though I don't own and haven't read volumes 4 & 5 (yet).
