Pattern-Oriented Analysis and Design (POAD) is the practice of building complex software by applying proven designs to specific problem domains. Although a great deal of research and practice has been devoted to formalizing existing design patterns and discovering new ones, there has been relatively little research into methods for combining these patterns into software applications. This is partly because the creation of complex software applications is so expensive. This paper proposes a
