Level of UI details in PART II

I'm working on the second part of the SCEA exam. I'm bit confused and have following questions/concerns:

1) I don't understand which level of design details about the Web UI and Java client should be included. Each screen and clicks?
2) What details of Servlet/JSP component and/or rich java client should be there on the component and class diagram?
2) Part I did not have much emphasis on Servlets and Swing, does it imply that I need to start from Business Delegate, Service Locator and going backwards to the app server.
3) Any tips on representing the same in sequence diagrams.

If I start designing from each clicks coming from both kind of clients then I believe it�s overkill for an assignment suppose to take 40 to 100 hours max.

Any tips and help are highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Shoaib,

there have been many discussions about the level of diagram detail in this forum. I recommend spending an hour or two browsing older threads until you come to an conclusion.

I also recommend Mark Cade's SCEA Study Guide (Sun Press). It includes an example project which might give you a notion how to start.

You don't need to provide much details on UI design.. however you need to complete the specified deliverables clearly. Provide enough documentation on Class diagram, sequence diagram and component. Explaination on Architecture diagram is must.

bottom lin, not to worry much on UI

good luck
