  • Dear Sir,

    One solution can never be 'Best' for all scenarios. Most of this are based on one's experience. Before this, you must have common sense for patching. Nick's links are really good and you can take a look.

    There are online resources called 'Best practices':

    If you need a book, you can go to amazon and search for one and checking customer reviewers.

    Best regards

    Frank
