Messaging Patterns Overview - Enterprise Integration Patterns This pattern catalog describes 65 integration patterns, collected from many integration projects since 2002. The patterns provide technology-independent design guidance for developers and architects to describe and develop robust integration solutions.

What OO Fails to Do What object oriented programming fails to do is express collaborations between objects. To show you exactly what I mean, let’s take a look at two system operations (two use cases) requiring the same group of objects collaborating with each other. (…) DCI to the Rescue DCI is a paradigm invented by Trygve Reenskaug (the inventor of the MVC pattern) to solve these problems. (via Data Context Interaction: The Evolution of the Object Oriented Paradigm – SitePoint )...
