As mentioned in the course OOUML I'm taking right now, Observer is also known as Publish-Subscribe & Dependents Patterns. Problem: Define a one-to-many dependency between objects so that when one object changes state, all its dependents are notified and updated automatically. Participants: Subject, Observer, ConcreteSubject, ConcreteObserver a.k.a.: Publish-Subscribe, Dependents Known uses: Java's Observable class and Observer interface. Java's Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture in Swing. Java's Delegate Event Model. IBM VisualAge Notification Framework used in Smalltalk and C++ Visual Builders. Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC)'s Document View architecture.
