This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
It took ten weeks, constant badgering of Shareon and Sun, and a lot of torn-out hair at night, but I finally got some results today. (Basically, I called Sun Education Services directly, spoke to 'Tommi' who was very nice and understanding, and I seem to have gotten somewhere finally.) I did promise I wouldn't whine anymore in here until something changed.
And now, the verdict.

Any test you can walk away from, if you ask me...
Actually, I'm kind of disappointed that all I got was a 71. (Yes, I know it says 100. Do the math - they manually added it, from the looks of things.) And I'd been so proud of my sequence diagrams. But any score you can walk away from that's over 70, right?

Originally posted by ravindra janapareddy: Congratulations Theodore Could you please mention which UML tool did you use for drawing the class, sequence and component diagram.
For most of it, I used JUDE Community Edition. For a few diagrams (specifically the class diagram, if memory serves me), I used Poseidon for UML, just because I didn't like how JUDE was doing the diagrams and didn't have the energy to fight with it.
Theodore Congrats.Now you are officially a Sun certified architect!! The score is'nt good but it should not put you down or miss your celebrations I see that your score has recived a beating in component diagrams. Could you explain to us what did you detailed out in component diagrams ? Did you show interfaes, realizations etc ? This is the area where I am not very confident. Vinay

I need to go look when I get home, honestly, since I don't have the charts here at the office. (I know it's taken me a day or two to even respond - bear with me. The wife and I are doing home renovations, and it's taking up my time when I'm not at the office. ) But, I do feel your pain - the component diagrams were the part where I also felt like I was weakest, followed very close behind by (apparently unfounded) class-diagram-doubt.
Originally posted by Pankaj Mishra Could u pls tell me if u had shown the generalization(inheritance) relationships in your class diagrams. If not then why ?
I did show generalization/inheritance in my diagrams. Thought it was the right way to go to explain what this wacky developer was architecting.
