What is the relation ship between Design Pattern and UML.
Is there any IDE tool is available for Design Pattern
like Rational Rose for UML.

Bidyut

Bidyut,
There is really no relationsship between Design Patterns and the UML... It's like saying "What is the relationship between Algorithms and the Waterfall Model of Software Engineering?"
Design Patterns are very general solutions to a specific class of problems that have been found to work through experience.
UML is a notation that is used to standardize diagrams and documentation used in OOAD.
There is no IDE tool for design patterns because they are so general... each time you use a design pattern it will be a little bit different to implement... but the general concept behind it will be the same.
HTH,
-Nate

The only relationship may be that a if use UML to design your applications, places where design patterns may be useful can become easier to find.

Like any other OO design, design patterns and the designs produced using them can be communicated using UML. But there is no other particularly special relationship.

I agree. However, I believe that some UML modeling tools like Together have built-in support for design patterns, so that you don't have to repeat the same basic steps to model design patterns every time. But I haven't actually used these features yet.

Padhi,
I try to look at Design Patterns the way Gamma has written.
i.e as "recorded Experiences".
I love the word "Design dejavu", it means u feel that u have solved a problem before bur can't remember how.
now similarly, millions of people have written thousands of good code which solve simillar problems, now imagine if they write down there experience in form of a Design Pattern and u can use them without living what they lived. u can also create your own experience in form of a new Design Pattern. so in a way u r living a life of multiple powerfull experiences in a small time.
If u allow me I can say, Life is all about learning, managing and creating experiences. and that small/big bundle of experience is Design Patterns in Software Language.
UML comes when u want to create a s/w blue print of the Design Pattern.
sorry if i have been carried away and bored u guys
