Need some basics on Design Patterns and UML

Hi,

Is there any good sites out there that will explain various Design Patterns when to use in a particular software solution?

Also a site on the fundamentals of UML developing when it comes to designing Framework for a Software Product?

By design pattern, I assume you are referring to patterns like the singleton, factory, and adapter. Your question is an excellent one, unfortunately I don't know of any decent sites off the top of my head.

FSGS turned up this: http://www.dofactory.com/Patterns/Patterns.aspx

As far as UML is concerned, there are many resources available. Two decent ones are:

The primary purpose of the DATA statement is to give names to constants; instead of referring to pi as 3.141592653589793 at every appearance, the variable PI can be given that value with a DATA statement and used instead of the longer form of the constant. This also simplifies modifying the program, should the value of pi change.

Thanks for the info I do refer to the DoFactory for references but it doesnt explain the situation to utlize then properly otherwise the site is excellent. I may have missed some links on the site for what i'm looking for. I'll check up again.

Any tools freely available to download to develop UML diagrams. Rational Rose is a pretty expensive to learning purpose. I do have Microsoft Visio 2003 it has the ability but just wondering if its powerful enuf like Rational Rose.

Any comments?

Doxygen is a great documentation suite that generates UML diagrams for small and large projects. It is used quite a bit in the classes I am taking.

I use SmartDraw when I need to create small UML diagrams.
