My web page (Below) contains a number of links to other sites on patterns, as well as a number of patterns I've written. If you're a J2EE programmer, a particularly good set of patterns you should get to know is Martin Fowler's Enterprise Application Architecture Patterns. Likewise John Crupi's "Core J2EE Patterns" is a good set to know was well.

I have to write a research paper on patterns and I found all of the previous links very helpful. But I'd like to add this one for everyone's future use. I found patterns very simple and easily explained here: (almost like a "pattern's for dumbies")

You may also try:Bob Tarr's online course.
But hard-copies of the Gang of Four book and Alan Shalloway's book (Design Pattern Explained) are accessible to newcomers. The latter possibly more than the former.
I agree. Here's the link:
