Thank you

I can try to help, but I don't know how much...
I've used embarcadero as modeling tool, it has some interesting feature to express include of another SD. The tool itself has some bugs, and at the end I had to manually edit the gif files to have a nicer result.
What I can say I know UML pretty well, so it wasn't too difficult, even if I still learned something new for this exam.
Here is my report per section...
Class Diagram (44 maximum) .......................... 39
Component Diagram (44 maximum) ...................... 34 Sequence/Colloboration Diagrams (12 maximum) ........ 10
and I didn't use EJB2.0 features, since I didn't know if it was allowed.
I tried to remain as generic as possible from this point of view.
In general I was very worried about changing the models, even where it
looked really nonsense, since it was saying not to change the requirements,
but I don't know if it has been good idea.
My opinion is that if you just want to pass is not that tough,
if you want an amazing score... you better ask someone else.
Hope this helps...

did u base ur design on the Petstore architecture? I am basing mine on that sample blueprint and using same design patterns from it
also did u show create relationships like
<<creates>>
DAO----------->Value Objects
and is it necessary to show all of them or can I just mention in my documentation because the diagram will be messy and cluttered ?
also do you design the travle agent's Swing GUI client program as well? or just the webtier
do we have to show the design(class and component diagrams) for the travle agent's Java Swing client GUI program?

Hi Dbala,
you can get rid of 'Mr.' when posting to me...
anyway, I've sent an email to suncert saying that i've already submitted the post, and after few days my result was in certmanager... no confirmation email anyway. now i'm waiting for the certificate by mail.
bye!

Hi Billy,
I've followed the Mark Cade book sample, even if somehow it was pretty confusing, because i thought that since he prepared the exam...
no, i didn't report relationships to VO, my diagrams were pretty simple.
No swing client...
but maybe that's where i lost my points.... if you have more patience than me, maybe you should do and see if you get a better score...
bye!

You see your score on certmanager after about 1 month (only part II reported), on prometric it will show that you failed part III soon after you took the test (even if you succeeded, I dont know if they will correct to success after a while...)

I submitted the 2nd part 1 and half month after part I, but I think that for what concern them you can even submit it the day after you receive your assignment...
