If you want to know how a real application is packaged up, that book is for you! It is not just about patterns, it is most about principles to apply to enhance design choices during the complete life of a product production. If you want to know more on OSGi, it is not exactly the book you're looking for - except that the examples are presented with OSGi - OSGi in Action is "the" reference.
Java application architecture is not only about isolated work, it is a complete and constant effort to guide teams. For consistency reasons, the software packaging should follow the agile methods applied on it. The author delivers in a great manner all the key analyse features to reach that goal. Master key conception features, that's what the author proposes here. It's big, it's simply more that enough.
