Design Patterns for Object-Oriented Software Development

Wolfgang Pree, Hermann Sikora

Design patterns support the development and reuse of extensible OO software components. They represent a complimentary enhancement of existing OO analysis and design (OOAD) methods. The tutorial will give an overview of state-of-the-art design patterns approaches, including pattern catalogs and framework patterns. A selection of useful patterns will be discussed in detail. The tutorial will also introduce hot spot cards, which have proved to be a useful communications vehicle between domain experts and software engineers in order to exploit the potential of design patterns.

Wolfgang Pree is Associate Professor at the University of Linz. He is author of Design Patterns for Object-Oriented Software Development (Addison-Wesely/ACM Press, 1995) and of Framework Patterns (SIGS Books, New York City, 1996).

Hermann Sikora is a managing director of RACON Linz Software, Inc., a company owned by and producing software for the largest private bank consortium in Austria. Sikora holds a Ph.D. in computer science and a degree in management information systems.
