I say that in spite of the fact that I'm seriously annoyed by patterns fashionistas and Fowler fanatics. This is not a collection of esoteric design patterns or capital-A architectures. This is a collection of tricks, schticks, and small-A architectures that just tend to show up repeatedly in the wild. Martin Fowler, with his perspective as an idea man and his position as a consultant and thought leader, has obse I think this is a great book.

Martin Fowler, with his perspective as an idea man and his position as a consultant and thought leader, has observed these and collected them together in a catalog along with some weighty analysis. An initial read-through is probably a good idea, at least enough to assimilate the introduction and be familiar with the existence of most of the patterns. Out of real-world context, the material feels to me to be very academic and not very practical.

Where it comes together is when I can use the book like a bird guide whilst bird watching: Digging through some code or design docs and stumbling on a mechanism, conceived and implemented by an author who may not have ever heard of PoEAA, and having some recognition like "Hey, this is very similar to a Query Object pattern. Sometimes it helps the task at hand by filling in as the missing documentation; other times it's merely "fun facts".

I've also used this book when putting together my own designs. It can provide useful guidance "What's an alternative if I don't like our offline locking". In both of the above uses, the book shines when I have a pattern already in front of me and I want to know more.

Probably as I get more practice out of putting context into Fowler's analysis, I'll be able to get direct practical value rather than food-for-thought out of working it the other way - starting with the academic discussion and being able to visualize real-world tailored specifics rather than idealized implementations.

Oct 01, Bragadeesh rated it liked it. This book will be more relevant for that ambitious architect who is willing to dedicate a lot of time to comprehensively brush through the basics of basic web design pattern. Since this book was written 15 years before and given that the information technology field is a rapidly changing one, the relevancy and newness is lost.

However, I would still recommend it for those who want find the roots and sources of the existing design patterns especially those deal with the enterprises.

One more thin This book will be more relevant for that ambitious architect who is willing to dedicate a lot of time to comprehensively brush through the basics of basic web design pattern. One more thing - if you are a seasoned Rails developer, you may and should skip reading this unless you may want to know why and how Rails is successful.

Aug 02, Daniel rated it it was ok. I re-read this because back then, I only skimmed it, and I thought some of the content might still be relevant today.

Unfortunately, this book has not aged very well. Most of the patterns are hardly useful at all in , or even anti-patterns by now.

Apr 13, Nguyen Huu Anh Vu rated it really liked it. As with other books by Martin Fowler, the writing style is unstable.

Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture

Some idea are well-explained, some are in dire need for more explanation. Even though some examples are out-dated we now use JSON over XML , the patterns presented in this book can still be useful in modern project. Must read for those who want to design architecture. Mar 05, Leo Maslovs rated it it was amazing. It's one of the best sw engineering books I've read recently. What I liked the best? The ELI5 explain like I'm 5 stuff.

Still it's so refreshing to get some good and clear read on this ELI5 style; I feel like I'm finally up to the point to be able to explain database isolation levels to 7th grade student mysel It's one of the best sw engineering books I've read recently. Still it's so refreshing to get some good and clear read on this ELI5 style; I feel like I'm finally up to the point to be able to explain database isolation levels to 7th grade student myself. I think it's something you come to especially appreciate after your own miserable attempts and failures in the field read experience.

Yes, book is from And yes, it didn't age so well. Still it's a very useful combo of ELI5 architecture approaches and good old common ground tricks tricks and patterns. Most of the stuff is still adequate in as in the , but some of the statements and recommendations have to be taken with a grain of salt which a good advice regardless which architecture book you are reading.

Having said that, I don't think the book will be easy read to industry new-comers it doesn't introduce some basics, instead it relies on some common ground knowledge: B2C applications, mapping tools et cetera.. Apr 30, Katrina Theodosopoulos rated it really liked it Shelves: I had a hard time understanding the examples because I don't know C or Java.

However, that's probably the only downfall I found to this book. Still being youngin' in the programming sphere, this book explained many concepts that you won't see explained in other places, and if they are, not nearly as well. I like how the book organizes the patterns, it makes them easier to find. The best way I found to read the book was looking up certain patterns I already knew or heard of, but wanted to learn I had a hard time understanding the examples because I don't know C or Java.

This book is very dense, and you'll probably have to read it a few times, unless you're a senior developer, then you might run through this book. I think this book is a must-have for new or aged developers.

It makes for a great reference. Even if you don't understand what you're reading the first time around, things will eventually start to click. This book helped me encompass a bigger picture of ORMs amongst other things used today. Would highly recommend, especially if you know Java or C. Apr 28, Brian rated it it was amazing Shelves: Another one for us techies First off, I don't think you can go wrong with Fowler.

I know that many will argue with me on that statement, but at least he gets you thinking and defending the points on which you disagree. This patterns book is a must have on your shelf as well. Great thing this hard back has a built in bookmark because it is heavily used. This isn't a great read from cover to cover, but it is a wonderful reference book. Anytime that I try to design a new architecture, this book co Another one for us techies Anytime that I try to design a new architecture, this book comes in handy to make sure that I am not reinventing the wheel.

A lot of this patterns are well implemented inside the most common frameworks or even provided as core language feature which allow you to solve that problem in clearer way. Give the right name to the right things is one of the most common problem in software design specially in new formed teams without great experience.

And this book, even though its age, still helps in this.

After some time I noticed This book shows its time by now. After some time I noticed that this book actually gives more advantages than expected, so I raised a star Oct 21, Alejandro rated it it was amazing.

A bit dated, but still a very good read. Although most modern frameworks already adopt most of these patterns, it's useful to internalize the motivations as well as the inner workings of each.

Also, as with any patterns book, it establishes a language that makes discussing architecture with peers easier; and it's pretty clear that the naming put forth here transcended. Looking forward to reading Integration Patterns.

Apr 02, Kendal Harland rated it it was ok. This is a pretty dense book. The concepts are explained in very abstract fashion making them difficult to relate to real-world use cases.

UML diagrams are used to model most of the patterns and are, in my opinion, an outdated method for modeling application structure less detail oriented diagrams often suffice. The author's voice doesn't display heavily, either: These are things I've come to expect from technical writing after This is a pretty dense book.

These are things I've come to expect from technical writing after reading great works such as the pragmatic programmer, the algorithm design manual, effective Java, etc. If you can make it through the book, you will certainly have learned something.

Personally I struggled to engage myself in reading the entire thing. Although many of the described patterns are either deprecated or already implemented in most popular enterprise frameworks, it was still very thought-provoking and educational to read about the motivations for their use and ways to implement them - after all, every worthwhile computer science curriculum teaches us how to implement linked lists and a whole other range of data structures that already come out of the box with most languages.

Similarly, after reading it cover to cover I tend to cons Although many of the described patterns are either deprecated or already implemented in most popular enterprise frameworks, it was still very thought-provoking and educational to read about the motivations for their use and ways to implement them - after all, every worthwhile computer science curriculum teaches us how to implement linked lists and a whole other range of data structures that already come out of the box with most languages.

Similarly, after reading it cover to cover I tend to consider this book Enterprise Programming As programming books go, this one is overly boring, and is really meant as a reference. The patterns are important however, and many systems have been implemented with them in mind. The author is very big into Java and Enterprise Architecture and you'll be a bit lost if you're not in those spheres of thinking. You pick it up when you have to implement something or understand a system that follows the patterns contained within.

Each pattern is annotated with references to other patterns so its eas As programming books go, this one is overly boring, and is really meant as a reference. Each pattern is annotated with references to other patterns so its easy to see how they all link together. Mar 10, Trevor Price rated it it was ok Shelves: This book certainly shows its age. Some patterns remain quite relevant, but in the year since this was published, IDEs and databases have improved dramatically, which renders some patterns totally useless.

And even if this were a more recent book, the format just doesn't lend itself to easy digestion. In fairness to this book, I can't think of a better way to present the material. But there just has to be a better way.

Part of the problem is that the examples are based on year-old tech at this This book certainly shows its age. Part of the problem is that the examples are based on year-old tech at this point, so many are cluttered up with CRUD boilerplate.

Nov 28, Augusto Oberziner rated it really liked it. Jan 02, Joe rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is the definitive reference on patterns in application development. The Gang of Four book is a classic reference on patterns, but the patterns there are lower level. And they are useful, but never had as much of an impact as this book. When reading this book, I immediately recognized many of the patterns and really value having a vocabulary to talk about application design decisions.

This is a must read book for advanced application developers and architects. Jan 28, Josh Readmore rated it it was amazing. An extremely influential book - unfortunately, going Domain Model for all data access has turned out to be a monumental failure. But it was a good try - and all of the patterns in this book are common and legit.

May 12, Christian Rondeau added it Shelves: This was my entry point in the software architecture field, which made me realise there's much more to software than code. A must read for software folks.

Jul 22, Reggie rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a solid book. It wasn't as useful to me as I had hoped, but I'd still recommend it as a good resource.

Dec 13, Piotr rated it it was ok Shelves: The book was written in times when SQL databases were an exciting innovation starting to dominate the market. As result many problems described are no longer faced by the majority of programmers, for many we know better solutions than those suggested. Sometimes it helps the task at hand by filling in as the missing documentation; other times it's merely "fun facts".
