Abstract: The paper proposes a technique for modelling design patterns that allows representing them in a way suitable for application design. First, the issue of design pattern representation is tackled. We identify the space of design patterns and specifically discuss two of its dimensions: abstraction and generality. Next, we describe a technique for modelling design patterns by means of description schemata at a metalevel. For general pattern structure, a metaschema representation has been proposed that defines pattern fragments and relations. Also, constraints are introduced that restrict the possible structure of pattern instances.
