SCEA gives a good opportunity to read and practice Java Pattern and Practices, OOAD and UML. Thus SCEA is a great learning experience.
We don't have to worry too much on how we define - Segment-Flight-Seat relationships, but just use common sense. I think importance is given to how well we define our design using J2EE and Java Pattern and Practices, and conformance to UML standards.

I have used following books for reference.


1. The Unified Modelling Language User Guide
by Grady Booch , James Rumbaugh , Ivar Jacobson

2. UML Disttled (Martin Fowler) is a good nutshell

3. Applying UML and Patterns: An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis and Design and Iterative Development, Third Edition
by Craig Larman ( In fact I found this as a good book to build fundamental OOAD thinking style)


1. J2ee Pattern and Practices

2. Cade's SCEA guide

3. The J2EE Architect's Handbook (by Derek Ashmore, from )

4. Enterprise JavaBeans, Second/Third Edition
By Richard Monson-Haefel (Especially for understanding CMP Relations)

I lost marks in all parts: 5 in Class Diagram, 1 in SD and 3 in Component Diagram, I am not sure what/where went wrong. It could be my design logic or UML conformance....

Best wishes to all SCEA aspirants.

I agree. Here's the link:
