Hi,
it's amazing ! I got my result already 15 days after part III and passed with 90 %.
Class Diagram (44 maximum) .................... 44
Component Diagram (44 maximum) ................ 34
Sequence/Colloboration Diagrams (12 maximum) .. 12
I'm little bit surprised why I got only 34 for Component Diagram. I
will take a review on it.
I'll still be a member of this group for some weeks. So you can ask some questions if you want.
Thank you all !

Hi, Thomas:
First, congratulations!
I just posted a question to the forum : "Client Consideration in SCJA". I would appreciate your advice. Also, would you mind telling us that if you have used entity bean in your design.
Thanks!

Hi Larry,
I'll try to give you some hints.

Hello:
I am taking the part II of SCJA. I have a question on designing the client tier. It looks like from the requirement that I need to support both web client (i.e. JSP) and stand alone client (GUI based). I have done the class diagram and I don't really have any class that deals with client (is this right?). But when I move to the component diagram, I am not sure how to handle different clients. I have one starting from JSP to servlet to EJB and backend. Am I supposed to have another one that supports stand alone GUI client (basically EJB client)? I would appreciate any insight from all of you who have passed.
Thank you very much in advance.

I submitted two class diagrams, one for web tier and one for business tier. Classes in the web tier showed the MVC architecture. The business class diagram extended the analyst's BDM. I provided no class diagram for client tier (Web client/Application client) but I showed them in the component diagram (but i got only 34). I submitted only one component diagram but I agree with your idea to provide two seperate component diagrams. Other people who passed submitted one component diagram for each use case. Anyway - I recommend to show the client components on the component diagram(s).
Yes, I used entity beans. I also described the reasons why I used entity beans for xyz.
