Grade: P
Score: 74
Comment: This report shows the total points that could have been awarded in each section and the actual amount of points you were awarded. This information is provided in order to give you feedback on your relative strengths on a section basis. The maximum number of points you could have received is 100, minimum to pass is 70. Class Diagram (44 maximum) .......................... 37 Component Diagram (44 maximum) ...................... 25 Sequence/Collaboration Diagrams (12 maximum) ........ 12



[Class Diagrams]
1. 3 class diagrams: one for business domain, 2 for 2 adapters.
2. Business domain class diagram included only 12 classes. Very detailed. Include
PK, FK, necessary attributes for GUI layout, and necessary methods. Based on my
personal work experience, I didn't follow OOAD to design business domain class
diagram but did mix OOAD with ERD.
3. The possible problem might be too few classes.
4. Generally speacking, I think my class diagram be OK.

[Component Diagrams]
1. 5 component diagrams: one template for both Swing and Web. 4 for 4 sequence
diagrams.
2. In template component diagram, all component were marked with template
stereotype.
3. The rest 4 component diagrams followed Cade's book examples. They came from
my four sequence diagrams. If my sequence diagrams got perfect score, why did I
loss so many points here??? Before you draw component diagram, please check its
definition again.
4. The possible problem might be I didn't draw 2 different sets for Swing and Web
each perspectively. safer???

[Sequence Daigrams]
1. 4 sequence diagrams follow Cade's book examples.
2. Followed Cade's book to get perfect score.

[Other Supplement Diagrams]
1. One diagram to display how to deploy my application.
2. One diagram to display how to pack my application.

[Others]
1. No stateful session bean. No web service. No entity bean.
2. Took part 3 in Jan 7, got the result in March 01.
3. RSA 6.0 for UML, NVU 1.0 for HTML, Ant for build, CVS for version control.
4. Spent 3 months to finish it, part time
5. Resources: Java Ranch, Cade's book, Applying UML And Patterns, 2nd edition,
3nd edition, UML Distilled 2nd edition, 3nd edition, Core J2EE Patterns,
Design Patterns GOF.

Steve,

Congrats.... Good luck for the future endevours...

Also, i really don't think score matters a lot. As long as you learn from the mistakes and understand what you have done wrong, its great.

By the way, wats next ?

Nice job Steve... like Asif said Score doesnt really matter. You got thru and have identified your mistakes(relative to the exam). And you have also shared for other benefit thats very nice of you...

Thanks a bunch

Take it easy. The score doesn't matter. As far as you put your effort in completing the assignement and you passed is great. Have a question for you, how long did you wait for the results?
