Books for Applying GoF design pattern

Hi,

I am looking for some books which provides an in depth view of Applying Gang of Four design pattern. I know we have our favorite Head First series. But what I am looking at is an implementation to practical Software problems and how to apply these patterns individually or together to solve a specific problem example. How to design a real world sample application using GOF patterns etc? Please advise.

Cheers,
Mainak

Applying patterns comes with experience. I dont think any book could help you with that. There are plenty of books which are based on Gang Of Four design patterns but all of them tell you how to implement, where to implement, why it works and the like.

The GoF book itself has a complete application developed by applying the patterns discussed in the book at required places i.e there is a case study which I think will be of great help. And you cannot develop complete applications using the patterns, they just solve certain parts of your application. But this varies with the scope of the patterns i.e the patterns can be applied at the code level, architecture level.
