In contrast to the implied handle-turning nature of many rigid development methods, patterns are founded in human ingenuity and experience. 3 4 Chapter 1 The Pattern Approach A true pattern exposes all of the above properties—if it is lacking any of them, it is probably just a solution to a problem, and most likely a specific design and implementation decision for a specific system, but not a pattern. Adapting the existing definition from the first volume of the Pattern-Oriented Software Architecture series [POSA1], this leads to the following characterization of the notion of patterns: A pattern for software architecture describes a particular recurring design problem that arises in specific design contexts, and presents a well-proven generic solution for it.
It exhibits the following characteristics: ■ A focus on practicability. The community looks for pattern descriptions of proven solutions to problems, rather than on presenting the latest scientific results. ■ An aggressive disregard of originality. Pattern authors do not need to be the original developers of the solutions they describe. ■ Non-anonymous review. Patterns are ‘shepherded’ rather than reviewed. The ‘shepherd’ contacts the authors of pattern papers and discusses the patterns with them.
