I’ve seen people in the Java community joke about class names that try and encompass as many design patterns as possible in a single name, but I never actually believed developers really did that. This blog post stands as a testament to the fact that they do. The title of this blog post is the name of a class I’ve just seen. And then proudly deleted, along with a bunch of other classes with equally vacant names.

I’ll leave the rest of this diatribe to The Codist (aka Andrew Wulf) who captured this very nicely in “I’m sick of GOF Design Patterns” [1].


[1] Technically speaking the Unit of Work design pattern is from Fowler’s Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture (PoEAA).
