Publisher Comments:

In 1994, Design Patterns changed the landscape of object-oriented development by introducing classic solutions to recurring design problems. In 1999, Refactoring revolutionized design by introducing an effective process for improving code. With the highly anticipated Refactoring to Patterns , Joshua Kerievsky has changed our approach to design by forever uniting patterns with the evolutionary process of refactoring.

This book introduces the theory and practice of pattern-directed refactorings: sequences of low-level refactorings that allow designers to safely move designs to, towards, or away from pattern implementations. Using code from real-world projects, Kerievsky documents the thinking and steps underlying over two dozen pattern-based design transformations. Along the way he offers insights into pattern differences and how to implement patterns in the simplest possible ways.

Coverage includes:

  • A catalog of twenty-seven pattern-directed refactorings, featuring real-world code examples
  • Descriptions of twelve design smells that indicate the need for this books refactorings
  • General information and new insights about patterns and refactoring
  • Detailed implementation mechanics: how low-level refactorings are combined to implement high-level patterns
  • Multiple ways to implement the same pattern—and when to use each
  • Practical ways to get started even if you have little experience with patterns or refactoring

Refactoring to Patterns reflects three years of refinement and the insights of more than sixty software engineering thought leaders in the global patterns, refactoring, and agile development communities. Whether youre focused on legacy or “greenfield” development, this book will make you a better software designer by helping you learn how to make important design changes safely and effectively.

Book News Annotation:

Kerievsky suggests that using patterns to improve an existing design is better than using patterns early in a new design, and enriches designs with patterns by applying sequences of low-level design transformations, known as refactorings. The 27 refactorings in his catalog address creation, simplification, generalization, protection, accumulation, and utilities. Each factoring describes the design transformation and when to use the method, and provides step-by- step instructions for an implementation along with a Java code example.
