Caveat: read the reviews on Amazon to check that the above two books are aimed at your level of experience. Also, you can find several of the patterns in these books, and the upcoming volume 3, on this page and elsewhere on the WikiWikiWeb.Volume 3 is out and claims to cover J2EE design patterns.

This book has a chapter on architectural styles for concurrent programs.

The second edition of this book, which radically altered the chapter structure, is ISBN 0201310090

Strictly more about good coding than idioms but very relevant

Please add any that you think of, and feel free to refactor the groupings. IdiomOrPattern ?
