I would like to express my sincere thanks to all forum members. This forum was really useful.

I followed the priciple of keeping the diagrams simple (in fact, very simple) and stick to what is given in the BDM and requirement document...any dark areas or incomplete requirements were mentioned in the assumption document.

Willy

Congrats man !!! Thats an awesome result.
So can you give me tips on how did you go about deriving the objects.
Is it necessary to use EJB's or will POJO's be good enough ??
Thanks

Congratulations! time for
I have finished my assignment but I am scrutinizing my work before uploading.
I have two questions
1. How many elements did you have in both your class diagram and component diagram?
2. Did you have session beans,DAO elements in your class diagram?

Good question...the assignment says the solution should be in J2EE..not specially in EJB. My advice is, if you are comfortable and convinced with the solution you made, go ahead and submit. I did the same, my solution was very simple and small. I was bit worried about my diagrams being very simple and small...but I was more comfortable with the whole document.

Do you have solution to cater the scalability and performance requirements with POJO?

My class diagram had 12 elements and component diagram had around 25 elements. Don't worry about the number of elements in each diagram. I was not looking at the diagram alone in my assignment, was reading the whole architecture solution document as my solution. Diagrams are part of that.

My suggestion is keep it simple, clean and cover the entire requirement. Don't worry much about the size of the diagram. (Me too was in the same dilemma about the size of my solution doc.) My principle was, evaluator is an expert in J2EE and the solution you architecture is for J2EE professionals, so there is no point in clouding the actual requirement with lot of wild assumptions.

I think your second question is answered.

Its a little cubersome to cater to this non-functional requirement using POJO's.Nonethless, stateful session beans will also have an adverse impact on the performance.So i guess an ideal solution would be to use a combination of stateless and stateful session beans.

Hi Willy,

It's a really excellent and satisfiable exam mark, congratulations!!!


BTW, how long did you complete your Part II exam project and diagrams? It's one month or two months.

Thanks a lot!

Scott

Scott,

It took more than two months. I made initial design in about 20 days. Then I was busy with my project work, so I could take it only after a month. Opening up the design after few days helped a lot in understanding weak areas in my design.

Hi Willy,

That's a really nice work because you still need to complete your daily schedule. Admire...

In addition, do you mean opening up the design as trying to collect the requirements in wide scope?

Thanks a lot!

Congrats man for your good score

My question is how hard will be part III and what to prepare? Should I prepare the topic that I covered for part I? .What type of question pattern I will get for this 3rd part?

Congrats and great job.

Can you please let me know that is there any deadline to give Part II, after you clear Part I.
And is there any constraint about the time to give Part III also after giving Part II of SCEA.

regards,
Manish

Scott,

What I mean is, I was busy with my work so I couldn't work on the assignment for some time. Reading my own solution after few days gap helped me in understanding weak areas.

Kumar,

Part III is easy, if you have completed part 2 by yourself. No prepration required.

Manish,

In my knowledge there is no restriction to give Part 2 after clearing part 1.
