All these "Passed scea" topics helped my motivation :-)

Thanks everybody.

Congrats !!! Thats a wonderful score you have got.
Can you please let us know as to what approach did you follow for designing the classes and sequence diagrams.

Thanks everybody.

My biggest problem was figuring out level of details. At some point I even had to change my design and make payment processing synchronous to avoid extensive documentation :-)

For example, I only mentioned that all appropriate components should use well-known ServiceLocator/BusinessDelegate patterns and omitted all this stuff from diagrams.

So dont you have to show the implementation of the patterns in the class diagrams ??

Correct. Class diagram may only show data model classes. My point is that sequence diagrams may also omit ServiceLocator or BusinessDelegate.

What about the component diagram, did you indicate your Service Locators, etc. there?

...or did you just state in your assumptions that you were going to be using them?

Hi Andy,

Congrats! That's an ideal and satisfiable exam result...

As you know, we should apply the class diagram in different levels, they are analysis and design level. Do you think we should apply the sequence diagrams for both class level and component level?

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

I'm looking forward to your reply! Thanks a lot!

Yours sincerely,

Scott

To make my sequence diagrams readable, I made them simple and small. I limited their width to fit an average computer screen and used SD-frames a few times. Most of participants were components. The largest sequence diagram had 8 participants.

Yes. That was the only place I showed them. But again, in contrast to Cade book, I showed all JSP pages as one component - "JSPs".

Congratulations. Good achievement.What type of relationship you showed in Component Diagram? Only dependency?or association, generalization, realization etc as in class diagram?

Thanks Andy! I will pay more care on components participant in sequence diagram.

BTW, because I'm still studying the Ripple methodology, and prepare to join the SCEA part II exam, so is it to convenient to ask you how long did you spend for completing the PART II exam?

Thank you!

Have to disturb you again. Could you give the total number of documents and UML types for Part II exam? Thanks a lot!

Component diagram showed only dependency. Showing other relationships would have resulted in much more detailed diagram.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
