I would like to thank you for this amazing site and well written tutorial. This is the best source to understand and implement design patterns.


I couldn't find the Interpreter Pattern in Behavioral section. Am i missing something? If its not there, can you please add this one also. It will be a great help for me and others.

Hi!

Thanks! I'm glad that my content is helpful to you! I didn't describe the Interpreter pattern simple because it is very rare and quire complex. As a software developer with 20 years of experience you could have used all 22 patterns but that one. I like to share this link when answering the questions about Interpreter: http://blogs.perl.org/users/jeffrey_kegler/2013/03/the-interpreter-design-pattern.html


There is a big irony in fact that I had used the Interpreter pattern to build the engine for live examples, which are part of the Refactoring Course. A live example looks pretty much as a short video which shows the sequence of refactoring steps. The actions that take place in a live examples in fact are being interpreted from a scenario like this one: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/RefactoringGuru/refactoring-examples/master/interactive/java/add-parameter.md
