It is impressive to see Martin Fowler's Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture in the book finalists. We solidly recommend this new book and wish Mr. Fowler good luck in the final voting.

Are the code examples written in Java? I need to know this before I buy it.

Yes. There are quite a few useful code examples written in Java.

Fowler also used Java in his Refactoring book and the examples there are very useful also.

For more information on this book see the following thread.

The winner of the Jolt Awards in the Books, Practical/General Developer Interest category was Agile Software Development: Principles, Patterns and Processes, by Robert C. Martin.

This book has received stunning reviews on amazon.com. Has anyone out there read this book yet?

Fowler's book (see above) got runner-up as did Kent Beck's Test-Driven Development: By Example.

I'm reading Kent Beck's book now and it is quite challenging in the sense that it will force you to totally rethink how software is not only developed but also designed. This book is sure to shake the foundations of software development for a while. However, before swallowing the TDD approach whole, remember that the practitioner who wrote the book is an experienced OO developer. It is not entirely clear how novices or even intermediate programmers are supposed to make the leaps that the author makes when using tests to drive OO design.
Despite this skepticism, the testing part of TDD is surely to make an impression on a software industry plagued by bugs.

What do other readers think about TDD?

Also, congratulations to Bruce Eckel, whose Thinking in Java (3rd edition) won the award for the Books, Technical category. Eckel is an excellent author, whose books are favorites for both Java and C++ developers.
