I believed I got a lot of tips from the forum. Thanks all of you for the help.

I have one class diagram with classes and packages, one component diagram with packages and five sequence diagrams including a login process flow.

I started with the class diagram design and focused on business domain model rather than technology. The classes in the diagram just list the basic data objects which can support the flight booking use at least. Don't spent time on the detail level because the detail class design is the job of the designer not the architect. The architect just defines the framework or basic high level structure. I only have five packages with two or three classes each package to show the overview of class structure .

The component diagram also includes five packages with each consists of two or more components. The communication protocols display among the packages.

I spend a lot of time on sequence diagrams. I think this is not architec work but as required in the assignment I have to be a designer for this. Using UML2.0 can save you lot of time since it support the reference.

The document I have 6 pages for the text description for above three of diagrms plus the sevice-level and design patterns used in design.

You can spend a lot of time on it but keep it in mind that this is the architecture framework design which will tell the others with how the flight booking system works. It's a blueprint for the developers or engineers use. Keep the diagrams as SIMPLE as possible. The exam is viewed by the expertises who have viewed this kind of design for a thousand of times.

After the completion of the assignment, I learned a lot about J2EE design patterns but I don't have much chance to code with it.

Good achievement!

One question: how could your architecture satisfy the requirement on performance, let's say, response time in several seconds.

Thanks

Did you show EJB home interfaces in sequence diagramms ?

Do you think it's a good idea to do it ?

Q: how could your architecture satisfy the requirement on performance, let's say, response time in several seconds.
A: not addressed in my document.

Q: Did you use Aggregation /composition is your class diagram or simply association?
A: Try to use aggregation/composition if you are sure. If not sure, I simply use association.

Q: Did you show EJB home interfaces in sequence diagramms ?
A: No. Treat a EJB as one object.

MagicDraw v10. I don't think it's good tool.

Q: Any recommendations?
A: focus on high-level not details. Using packages to group the classes and componenets. I refered a lot of PetStore design sample from its web tier. But I don't like their EJB tier which makes the design complicated.

Q: Could You Pls send me links of Free Mock Test for SCEA-I?
A: 1) read Pete Morgan paper as the start point. See http://www.sarahandpete.com/work/SCEAexamnotes.pdf
2) Use Whizlab. It covers most of exam I. I got 87% since I found there 6 questions in the exam I can't answer becuase of Whizlab doesn't cover it.
