How to identify design patterns

Hello All,

I have gone through some books and material for 'Design Patterns' on the net and now, I have started getting idea as to what patterns actually are/do.

However, now I want to understand how these patterns are implemented in SPRING(or any other nice framework, I selected it because I am comfortable using it).

I googled and found 'Chris' suggesting 'going through the code itself'.I tried this and found it very interesting but, at times I get lost in the code and confusion creeps in.

Is there a better way this could be done please ?.Or your views on doing such activity ?

I am looking forward to design nice systems in the long run.

Thanks & regards,

Yes. I agree that going through SPRING code to learn about Design Patterns sounds like a good idea. From my experience with Spring I really like the framework because of ease of use.

I'd suggest you go through and run the unit tests. That may help you track the pattern.
