4.1 Overview In many patterns redbooks, the reader learns the details of all of the Application patterns and then from this knowledge selects the proper Application pattern given their customer requirements. This approach is known as the fast entry point (see Fast path entry point 2 in Figure 4-1) and is still available in this book. In an effort to make the patterns more accessible, we have added IT drivers and capabilities as selection criteria used to select the appropriate Application pattern (see entry point 1 in Figure 4-1). Note: Figure 4-1 highlights the steps found in this chapter. Refer to 3.1.1, "Process for using patterns within RUP" on page 64, for a description of the entire process.
