Today I have checked my result and felt happy to see that I have passed SCEA Part-2 and 3 with 86% score.
Class Diagram: 38/44 Component Diagram: 36/44 Sequence Diagram: 12/12
I am very thankful to everyone on this forum, which is highly instrumental in my success in both Part-1 and 2. Apart from this forum, I have read Core J2EEpatterns book, sun java blueprints and referred certain online resources for Part-2 and would like to share the following links for the benefit of future aspirants:
I have used StarUML for producing UML diagrams and found it very easier to use, light weight and free tool compatible with UML2.0 standards and best of all it produced neat diagrams. Finally I wish all the best for those preparing for this exam.
Thanks for the links! This should be very helpful.

Try this: On the right hand side, there is a Model Explorer view. Select Analysis Model and right click and then choose Add Diagram option to see the different diagrams you can produce with StarUML. You can produce Sequence and Component Diagrams as well. On the left hand side tool box, you will find the relevant artifacts that are specific to a chosen diagram. Just read through the User Guide under Help Menu and play around it, you will get familiar with its usage.
Hello ManojKumar Unnikrishnan, I am using StarUML and am able without problem to create sequence and component diagrams. Under Model explorer, I selected Design Model. Right click on this link and select Add Diagram from the dropdown list. You will see component and sequence diagrams items there. I hope this can help you
Congrats! That's an ideal and satisfiable exam result...
BTW, how long did you complete your Part II exam project and diagrams? It's one month or two months.
Thanks a lot!

Thank you all. I think the preparation time depends upon your current level of understanding of J2EE design patterns,UML, OOAD and professional experience. I have spent about 2 months time to reach to the level of working out a solution for the assignment and then bought the voucher and started working out the design and diagrams which took about another one month.

Thanks for your guidance and kindly sharing! It's really helpful and valuable for me, and should be for anyone.
Best wishes to you, and hope your career could be more smooth and glorious!
Congratulations. Good achievement. I am confused with my component diagram. What type of relationship you showed in Component Diagram? Only dependency?or association, generalization, realization etc as in class diagram?
