Vikram says on his blog,
A few days back when I wrote the blog on design pattern a small but interesting question came to my mind. How and why did the design pattern started. So I started hunting in the google for my curiosity and found some interesting stuff. So I thought I would share them with you.
A repeatable solution for commonly occurring problem in the software programming is called design pattern. Design patterns are not finished designs for the problems, but are template and description on how the solve the problem, which might occur in different situations. Design patterns commonly show relations and interaction of different class or objects or types. They do not specify the final class or types that will be used, but give an abstract view of the solution.
Interesting enough, isnt it?
