Use these for your study of design patterns or when discussing patterns with your team. Or perhaps you want UML printouts of commonly used patterns on your office wall. Whatever your need, you have all UML diagrams available in a format you can work with.
Dofactory Design Pattern Framework 4.5 Download
The .NET Design Pattern Framework 4.5 comes with a unique reference app named Patterns in Action. It is built on a 4-tier pattern architecture using numerous design patterns and best practices.
The yellow Convention over configuration box represents a best practice paradigm that is fundamental to the entire solution. Applying convention over configuration greatly simplifies the entire application stack making it easier and faster to build. Next, we see numerous green boxes, each representing a design pattern, scattered throughout the solution. They come from 3 major pattern categories: Gang Of Four patterns, Fowler's Enterprise patterns, and the Model-View family of patterns. All are reviewed and discussed in depth in this package.
Patterns in Action is a comprehensive 4.5 .NET reference application that demonstrates when, where, and how design patterns are applied in modern application design. Of course, you re getting 100% source code -- nothing is hidden.
The two projects built with MVC and Web Forms appear and behave the same, but their underlying code is very different. MVC is based on the MVC (Model View Controller) design pattern, whereas Web Forms is built with traditional code behind pages.
The table above lists the key patterns in Spark. In case you're not familiar: DTO = Data Transfer Object and CQRS = Command Query Request System. Again, all design patterns and their use are explained in the documentation.
Applying Spark to your applications requires that you follow some simple conventions and patterns. However, these are flexible enough to let you refine or tweak the code in each of the layers with specially designed extension points (implemented as partial classes, partial methods, and virtual methods). Spark is flexible and leaves you always in control.
If you have been following what is going on with design patterns then you know that the Head First Design Patterns book is one of the more popular pattern books. It is one of those rare gems that has the ability to make something as complex as design patterns, easy and fun to learn.
This is why we are including a reference document that relates each .NET project back to the appropriate page number where the topic of the pattern begins. In addition, this document also highlights the differences between Java (i.e. the book) and the .NET implementations of these patterns. So, snuggle up in your favorite chair with this book and the .NET code samples and make learning design patterns a fun experience.
As you can see, the .NET Design Pattern Framework is a unique product. It has all the information you need to make informed decisions about when, where, and how to apply proven design patterns. This is the kind of product that will change your outlook on development as you start incorporating patterns and practices into your own projects.
Developing with a team? If you are working with a development team it may be more cost effective to order a 16-user license. It allows up to 16 users on to use the Design Pattern Framework. Compare these prices to formal classroom training. The .NET Design Pattern Framework is highly cost effective to get your team started with design patterns. Order details are below.
For instance, the other day I was trying to recollect the implementation details of the Decorator design pattern, and searched for it on the Internet and in the process, got glued at the wealth of information available on design patterns.
One day, I read an article that said that the richest two percent own half the world's wealth. It also said that the richest one percent of adults owned 40 percent of global assets in the year 2000. And further, the richest 10 percent of adults accounted for 85 percent of the world's total wealth. So there is an unbalanced distribution of wealth in the physical world. Have you ever thought of an unbalanced distribution of knowledge in the software world? According to my view point, the massive expansion of the software industry is forcing developers to use already implemented libraries, services, and frameworks to develop software within ever shorter periods of time. New developers are trained to use (I would say more often) already developed software components to complete the development quicker. They just plug in an existing library and somehow manage to achieve the requirements. But the sad part of the story is, they never get the training to define, design the architecture for, and implement such components. As a number of years pass by, these developers become leads and software architects. Their titles change, but the old legacy of not understanding, of not having any architectural experience, continues, creating a vacuum of good architects. The bottom line is that only a small percentage of developers know how to design a truly object oriented system. The solution to this problem is getting harder every day as the aggressive nature of the software industry does not support an easy adjustment to existing processes, and also the related online teaching materials are either complex, or less practical, or sometimes even wrong. Most of them use impractical, irrelevant examples of shapes, animals, and many other physical world entities to teach the concepts of software architecture. There are only very few good business-oriented design references. Unfortunately, I myself am no exception and am a result of this very same system. I got the same education that all of you did, and also referred to the same resource set you all read.
The two design patterns are fundamentally different. However, when you learn them for the first time, you will see a confusing similarity. So that will make it harder for you to understand them. But if you continue to study eventually, you will get afraid of design patterns too. It is like infant phobia, once you get afraid at your early age, it stays with you forever. So the result would be that you never look back at design patterns again. Let me see whether I can solve this brain teaser for you.
In the image below, you have both design pattern listed in. I am trying to compare the two one on one to identify the similarities. If you observe the figure carefully, you will see an easily understandable color pattern (same color is used to mark the classes that are of similar kind).
Sometimes creational patterns are complementary: so you can join one or many patterns when you design your system. As an example builder can use one of the other patterns to implement which components get built or in another case Abstract Factory, Builder, and Prototype can use Singleton in their implementations. So the conclusion would be that the two design patterns exist to resolve two type of business problems, so even though they look similar, they are not.
