Grade: P
Score: 87

The maximum number of points you could have received is 100, minimum to pass is 70. Class Diagram (44 maximum) .......................... 37 Component Diagram (44 maximum) ...................... 40 Sequence/Collaboration Diagrams (12 maximum) ........ 10


Well, I am not happy with the score. I expected minimum 90%. But, well, considering the fact that I spent just 16 hours for the entire part 2 including documentation, the ROI is great. ( Cant help, as I have to manage 2 projects)

Thanks for the forum for your excellent support. I will be active in the forum as long as I can. This is a place where I meet great minds and hearts.

Thanks

What do you think is the better way?

Check Prepare Itinerary Use case and see when the user specifies the cities.

Congrats !

Can you tell us how many class / sequences / component diagrams you had ? 16 hours is pretty fast, I spend that time alone understanding the assigment

My assignment consists of
a) Two class diagrams
Business Model - with around 20 classes
Web App Framework Diagram - around 8 classes

b) Six Sequence Diagrams
5 Use cases
1 genral control flow


c) One Component diagram

d) One Deployment Diagram

e) A brief writeup of my architecture HTML Document which comes to 4 pages if printed in A4 size.

Few things I want to mention are:
1) I gave all strengths and weaknesses of my architecture in the writeup and the trade-offs for choosing such architecture.
2) I used steriotypes extensively in all UML diagrams
3) I gave a high level abstraction of the system without dwelving into implementation details much

I asked my co-developer in my team and asked him whether he understood what I am submitting or not. He asked some valid questions for which I could find answers in my architecture. So, I was convinced of my assignment and uploaded and immly wrote part 3.

It took exactly 1 month for results to come. Not a day less, not a day more.

Thanks

Ok, thats nice.

About the level of abstraction: did you draw the design patterns on the diagrams somewhere or did you just adress this in you assumptions list ? For exampme: dod you acutally draw a claass: abstract factory pattern, service locator etc... or did you mention this only in your list.

About the component diagram, what did you show there ? Just the components and their interaction ? Or did you do something special with it...

Thanks.

Some of the patterns are too difficult to miss. For example CommandManager etc specify that it uses Command Pattern. But I had a section for Design Patterns alone in my arch doc. I specified why I choose that pattern in that context and what I am gaining by that.

Coming to Component Diagram, it contains different components in the system packaged according to the tier they belong to. And I specified all associations between the components.

I think my UML Compiance is bad. I used UML 2.0 for Component and Class diagrams. But UML 1.4 notation for Interaction Diagrams.

Ok, so you did not actually draw the classes which for the command pattern then ? You just marked that component representing the pattern with prefixing its name (and then explain the actual pattern in the doc) ?

Ok, some final questions:

Which tool did you use to draw all the required diagrams ? I'm using togetherJ but this is not yet UML 2.0 compliant. For the sequence and class diagram I dont really think you need 2.0, but maybe for the component diagram... Can you tell us how many artifacts were on your component diagram ?

Finally: you say that you packaged the components per tier. That means that you have a part with only components belonging to the web application right ? Did you express the use of patterns here ? ex. did you cleary indicate with the required classes that you use MVC (for example) ? Or did you just show the JSP components and the interaction with the business tier.
