A Pattern Evolution Process - From Ideas to Patterns

René Reiners, Fraunhofer FIT



Current pattern languages are derived after long experience by an expert group of pattern authors. This may lead to a decelerated reuse of available design knowledge. In this work, we propose an early involvement of many stakeholders within a project to early contribute their ideas as pattern candidates. Over time, these ideas are developed towards validated patterns or refined in future iterations. Our approach intends to integrate available application design knowledge directly from the beginning of the development process.
