Design patterns are a proven way to build high-quality software. The number of design patterns is rising rapidly, while management and searching facilities seems not to catch up. This is why selecting a suitable design pattern is not always an easy task. This issue is especially clear for less experienced developers. In this paper we present our approach to cope with the presented issue - an experiment prototype of a new design pattern repository, based on semantic web technologies. Since new ontology-based design pattern repository is a work in progress we point out its potentials for improving design pattern adoption.
