Hello all,
I have passed part I out of hard study but I don't have any real experience with EJB nor UML.
I feel completely lost with the assignment as I have never seen a whole project design(classes, sequence diagrams,componentes,...).
I am going to buy Enterprise with UML.
Could somebody please tell me:
1.- If I should study more book and which ones.
2.- Where I can find the whole thing done(of course for a different project.I am not asking for the solution to the assigmente. I want the solutino for a different project so I can learn what I have to deliver).

Hello Eduardo,
"Enterprise Java with UML" presents a good approach. But it doesn't provide any component diagram.
My approach was a little different. you will find some insights in this thread
I used TogetherSoft control center 5.5 to draw UML diagrams ( try trial version).
You don't need EJB hand-experience to do this assignment (you have already proven for SCPJ2 and SCWCD ;-) ).
Read some good J2EE design practice (see and SUN PETSTORE APPLICATION SAMPLE (security, transaction...) !!!

Hi Herve,
thanks for your fast answer.
I have read the topic you mention (along all assignment related topics). I think that by biggest problem is that I haven't seen at all what I have to deliver: I haven't seen a complete class diagram for a given specification (and the same for sequence diagramas and components diagram).
I think that if I could see it I wouldn't have much problem with the assigment, but so far I don't know where to start.
I can't find designs in
Could you please be specific about where in that web I can find that?
Thanks Herve.

Try the site below it might help...

Rational Corporation has an interesting sample J2EE application that
uses the J2EE patterns. It's an online auction application. The home
page for it is at: A good
place to start looking at it though is the Architecture Overview
document at: You can
go to the following URL to the software in action:
