Prior research suggested modeling languages for precise specification of design pattern structures and behaviors. However, seldom has put effort on their integrations as well as their specifications. To provide a first class CASE support to the recognition, verification and application of design patterns as well as their compounds, a precise specification to their leitmotifs is critical. In this paper, we present the essentials of pattern integration and propose an extended version, we name it exLePUS, to a pattern specification language (LePUS) in order to support the specification of these essentials and thus compound patterns. A case study has illustrated how it is used a well-known compound pattern.
