Hi,

I would like to know where from the internet I could get free downloadable books on Design Patterns. Both for java and j2ee. Morely I'd like to know the free book "Design Patterns" by JAMES WILLIAM COOPER.

Thanks in advance,
Narendranath

Hello Naren,

This book is not free as far as I can tell (for sale here).

If you were asking for a free downloadable version of a book that you otherwise should pay for, please remember that we very strongly discourage this at Javaranch.

As the prices are in US dollars, it will be a huge for us people in India or other underdeveloped and developing countries. As I could not afford the sum, I asked for free books.

Hi Narendranath,

Yeah, those $ prices can be a drag, especially when you're not paid in $. But making electronic copies available on the internet is illegal, and Javaranch won't have anything to do with that.

There are some used copies on amazon for $10, not free but a lot less than than retail.


Cheers,
Pauline
