The main goal of this paper is to extract and document the core knowledge of the classification technique, as an analysis pattern that is usable in many different applications, where classification concept is required, rather than repeatedly building the concept from its scratch. The motivation behind the development of this pattern is to write a generic pattern, based entirely on the core classification concept, which is applicable in any application, and in any domain where classification is needed. To achieve this goal, this paper uses the concept of "software stability model" (SSM) to identify and isolate the core knowledge of classification from the application specific knowledge. Several scenarios chosen here to explore and probe will demonstrate the applicability and reusability of the pattern. This paper also provides a detailed documentation of the proposed pattern and demonstrates a number of benefits and advantages by demonstrating two case studies, which describe two completely different applications that use classification to solve specific problem in a specific domain.
