The book has three categories of patterns: architectural patterns, design patterns, and idioms. The architectural patterns are:

Frankly, I hate both the buzzword-compatible title of our book as well as the acronym PoSa. Only, both were the better choice considering alternatives. For instance, people proposed GangOfFive (PartyOfFive?) as a nickname for us. Imagine the confusion this can cause (and caused in my brain when I heard it for the first time!) -- HansRohnert

Hmmm, so which of the authors thought it was cute that "Patterns of Software Architecture -- A System of Patterns" has an acronym that's a palindrome? -- JimCoplien

Would that be an acronome?

Sadly a lot of people noticed that this page can't be found by their browsers. On [BrokenLink] it states (in German), that this page sadly is only reachable from within Siemens.
