OOMD Lecturer Notes


Pattern Categories
we group patterns into three categories:
 Architectural patterns
 Design patterns
 Idioms
Each category consists of patterns having a similar range of scale or abstraction.
Architectural patterns
 Architectural patterns are used to describe viable software architectures that are
built according to some overall structuring principle.
 Definition: An architectural pattern expresses a fundamental structural
organization schema for software systems. It provides a set of predefined subsystems,
specifies their responsibilities, and includes rules and guidelines for organizing the
relationships between them.
 Eg: Model-view-controller pattern.
