Java Application Architecture: design principles & patterns

Hello Kirk,

I've looked at your web site and it is very interesting.

Some parts remind me of Uncle Bob's principles some years ago (e.g. The Acyclic Dependencies Principle)

Does your book revisit some 'old' principles?

Best,

Yvette

Hello,

At the end of the book, an Appendix outlines Uncle Bob's SOLID principles. Throughout the text, you'll see several references to Uncle Bob's principles, as well. The acyclic relationships pattern is a derivative of Bob's Acyclic Dependencies principle. But there is also a big difference. If you recall, Uncle Bob originally called these package principles. I don't find the package principles as useful as the modularity patterns because the Java package isn't a physical construct, but a logical construct.

Take a look at the acknowledgements in the excerpt below. Aside from my experience applying this stuff, there were four other significant influences. One of those is Uncle Bob's work. The other include Clemens Szyperski and his work on component software, John Lakos and his work on C++ large scale design, and the GOF work.

Visit the book's website at modularity.kirkk.com where you can review all 18 patterns and download an excerpt of the book. There is also a mobile web application available that you can take with you wherever you go.

Thank you, I cannot wait to read it.

Kind regards,
