Design Patterns in Java (TM) gives you the hands-on practice and deep insight you need to fully leverage the significant power of design patterns in any Java software project.
The perfect complement to the classic Design Patterns, this learn-by-doing workbook applies the latest Java features and best practices to all of the original 23 patterns identified in that groundbreaking text. Drawing on their extensive experience as Java instructors and programmers, Steve Metsker and Bill Wake illuminate each pattern with real Java programs, clear UML diagrams, and compelling exercises.
You'll move quickly from theory to application-learning how to improve new code and refactor existing code for simplicity, manageability, and performance.
