Hmmm, A couple of thoughts on this entry: 1)shouldn't, perhaps, the 'Design Patterns' page be about the concept of design patterns, with a reference to the Gang of Four book of the same title as one of the primary works on the subject? There is much more to say about design patterns than appears in the GOF book, and there are other books on the subject. 2)Does listing a books table of contents count as plagerism?
- Agreed. There's already Design pattern (computer science) for the concept in general -- so if this article is to be about the book, it should bear the name of the book. -- Tarquin 19:29 Sep 22, 2002 (UTC)

Design Patterns CD
the usefull resource for this book is a CD version - maybe this should also be put somewhere on this page?
Gamma, Erich, Richard Helm, Ralph Johnson, and John Vlissides (1997). Design Patterns CD. ISBN 0201634988.
Year of publication?
At the bottom it says books from 1994, but is this correct? I would expect a line like: The book was first published in 19xx, with a much improved second edition in 19xx ...
No, this is the correct version. We're still using it as a Textbook. The book basically is the bible of Design Patterns.
