Must have for serious enterprise/web developers,
This review is from: Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture (The Addison-Wesley Signature Series) (Hardcover)
This book is more pragmatic, and therefore useful, than most of the patterns books I have read. I have been building .NET apps using the patterns I have applied in previous J2EE projects (mainly documented in Core J2EE patterns).
However this book builds upon these approaches and has specific advice for both J2EE and .NET systems. I don't think there can be many developers working commerically with either of these technologies who would not find the ideas presented in this book very useful.
