Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Allen Holub is a long time expert on Design and Design PatternsEven if you do know your design patterns well, I'll wager Holub still has a trick or two to impress you with.-- James Edward Gray II, Slashdot contributor

Design patterns are really about making the best use of object orientation, and this book provides plenty of good advice independent of particular patterns.-- Pan Pantziarka, TechBookReport

...you are able to see a real-world implementation, complete with warts and trade-offs From a readability standpoint, the book also shines. The conversational nature of his writing means that you aren't feeling as if you're poking yourself in the eye repeatedly. It's actually enjoyable...-- Thomas Duff, Duffbert's Random Musings

Holub explains programming in an object-oriented way, and how to use design patterns to solve commonplace problems in object-oriented systems.-- SciTech Book News, December, 2004

...very detailed with its examples and extended explanations of proper object-oriented methodologies, (which) scores bonus points with me.-- John Flinchbaugh's Weblog

The existing books on design patterns take a catalog approach, where they show the individual design patterns in isolation. This approach is fundamentally flawed because you can't see how the design patterns actually function in the real world. Most programmers learn by looking at computer programs.

Holub on Patterns: Learning Design Patterns by Looking at Code teaches you design patterns in exactly this way: by looking at computer programs and analyzing them in terms of the patterns that they use. Consequently, you learn how the patterns actually occur in the real world and how to apply the patterns tosolve real problems.

This book also looks at the broader context of object-oriented (OO) design and how patterns solve commonplace OO design problems. It covers many of the principles of OO design — principles not covered by most books on Java — and shows you how to apply these principles to make your code easier to maintain and debug.

Book News Annotation:

For readers who know Java and have written at least a few programs in it, and are particularly familiar with anonymous inner classes, software consultant Holub explains programming in an object-oriented way, and how to use design patterns to solve commonplace problems in object-oriented systems. He says his account augments rather than supplants the standard Design Patterns by Gamma, Helm, Johnson, and Vlissides, known as the Gang of Four. There is no bibliography.
