Hi all, I guess the topic has been discussed already. But I would really appriciate if anyone could throw some more light on the "Classification of Design Pattern". GoF classifies them as Structural, Behavioral and Creational. I would be happy if anyone could bring out some other way of 'seeing' the classification.
