    I haven’t written Java in my day-to-day for quite some time now, but the first thing that came to mind for a good open source Java codebase is Guava by Google:

    It’s a collection of core libraries for Java that I believe should have a lot of useful patterns/concepts to learn from.

    I also highly recommend Effective Java by Joshua Bloch ( An incredible text for any kind of programmer, and even better if you’re specifically interested in Java.

    Good luck!
