pp: 59-66
ABSTRACT
<p>In the current climate, pattern is an often misused buzzword. However, there is no clear definition of patternness, perhaps because patterns do not lend themselves to prescriptive, formal definitions. The authors propose a set of characteristics that can be used as a test for patternness. Each characteristic in their test describes an essential aspect of a design pattern. Recognizing these characteristics will help software designers understand, use, and write better patterns.</p>
