At Last!! (My Results are In)

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.


Test: Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition Technology Part II (310-061)
Date Taken: 2005-09-07 13:05:48.077
Registration Number: gt00003485
Site: n/a
Grade: P
Score: 100
Comment: This report shows the total points that could have been awarded in each section and the actual amount of points you were awarded. This information is provided in order to give you feedback on your relative strengths on a section basis. The maximum number of points you could have received is 100, minimum to pass is 70. Class Diagram (44 maximum) ............................... 40 Component Diagram (44 maximum) ........................... 25 Sequence/Colloboration Diagrams (12 maximum) ............. 6


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?

Many Many Congratulations Theodore!!!
Waiting for 10 weeks was really not an easy thing.

But All that matters is SCEA ... that's what you are now.

Hey Theodore,

I am really happy for you...not only for your passing the exam but also for the end of an almost endless wait (10 weeks) you have gone through.

Yours must be some sort of records in terms of the wait time.

If I got lucky, it was only the bad kind - I waited 2 1/2 months (10 weeks).

Unless I'm missing your meaning.

Congrats!!! Theodore

I checked this ranch only to see if your results have come. Both of us did II/III pretty much the same time.

Congrats once again.

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.

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.

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.

I did show generalization/inheritance in my diagrams. Thought it was the right way to go to explain what this wacky developer was architecting.

Congratulations, Theodore! I read about all your history, and I'm very happy to know that you have passed. You waited for a long time, but you have done it, with the best possible score!

By now, I also waiting for my results - today your fried Sharean told me that my assignment was sent to grading in April, 21. I'm in the 3-week wait, and couting the days...
