A great book to simplify life of application architect,
This review is from: Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture (The Addison-Wesley Signature Series) (Hardcover)
If you are an experienced application architect/designer ... you'll probably learn very little new from this book. All patterns described here have been mentioned somewhere else, and has been used for many years. What you will get though is a common vocabulary and very precise and wonderfully written explanations what each term exactly means.
So how this book is to simplify my life? For every new/replacement developer on the project, instead of many pages long architecture document, I'm handling a 1 page summary that uses patterns names from Martin's book along with the book itself and it works beautifully :)
