Extensibility and maintainability of software becomes more an issue as the complexity of the software development process rises. Design patterns in the sense of Gamma et al. [3] aid in reducing the problem of architectural decay. However, new publications steadily increase the number of documented patterns. This makes the automated and tool-supported processing of design patterns more important. Here, the definition of pattern templates receives prominent relevance.
