Congratulations James ! Good work.

I had a few question on component diagram. Did you show entity beans/POJOs and their dependencies (with each other) in your component diagram? How many components did you show? Did you group them by packages or tiers or didnt group them?
For your class diagram, did you show attributes/methods for the classes in it?

Thanks,
Parag

Hi, Parag,

I have around 35 components in component diagram. I did show entity bean and session bean and their dependences. They are grouped in package according to the tiers such as client tier, web tier, ejb tier, EIS tier.

For class diagram, I didn't show attributes/methods in it.

Hope it helps.

So did u create a package and added the components into them for each tier.
In that case how did u show dependency among components in different tiers.

How did u show Tiers .. ? Using the package notation and adding the components for a tier into that package. ?

Thanks

I have a few question

do you draw the swing component in component diagram. In use case diagram, the travel agent is drown as an actor. so I think it is possible that the swing client is not requited to implement. can you give me some suggestion.

Dhiren,
I created each package for each tier and put this tier's components into it. I have a component diagram, so dependency between components in different tiers can be drawn.

James,
I simply used 'Swing client' component for travel agent, and didn't implement it in details.

James when u say that u created each package and put the tiers component into it. Does that mean u had package notation on a component diagram with each tiers components in a package notation.

I have a component diagram, so dependency between components in different tiers can be drawn


when u say they above I am confused because it seems to me that showing tier packaging is done on a different diagram then the component diagram. So it is seeming to me that u had two diagrams which comprised of your component diagrams. One which had the package notation showing just the tiers and the other all components with the dependency without any tiers.
Did I get that correct ?

Still confused
Thanks

James,
Can you tell us something more about the deployment diagram. Was it more on the basis of a network diagram -just showing the boxes and the communication btw them or was it a deployment diagram showing all the components deployed on each box and the communication protocol btw them?

Parag,
My deployment diagram is a simple one. It just shows the boxes and the communication protocol between them. You may find some example from book "UML Distilled".

Good luck,
James

James ,
Which UML tool did u use..? If u used Rose
How did u show multiple dependency links between tier packages in component diagram or How did u show inter tier links between components in different tiers ?
At least I am not able to figure a way for Rose to handle that ?
Thanks

Congratulations James.

Could you please let us know:
1. The JSP components belong to Web Tier or Client Tier.
2. Which tier does DTO/VO belong.

Thanks,

Dhiren,

I used Rose too. For dependency links between components in different packages, I used the "Dependency" icon to draw it.

AJ,
1. I put JSP components in Web tier.
2. I showed DTO/VO components in EJB tier, but they are shared across different tiers, such Web tier, Client tier. So I put notes about it in component diagram.

Patrick,
My document is html format with hyperlink to diagrams(jpeg images exported from rose). It introduces design modules, J2EE design patterns used, and assumptions made in design.

Patrick,
Assumptions mean if you didn't show something obviously in your diagrams, you should write it down in the assumptions doc so examiner can know what you think, such as in security model, web server and application sever are all inside the firewall and mention protocals they used.
