Passed SCEA II & III

Hello Everyone,
I have successfully completed SCEA II & III. I have taken my part III 3 weeks before and uploaded my part II after 3 days of my part III as I was not given uploads rights until then. I was very satisfied with all of my diagrams and the documentation. I had one page for assumptions document alone. I checked my results in https://www.certmanager.net/sun_assignment/
and I have passed with the score as 87.

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) .......................... 36
Component Diagram (44 maximum) ...................... 39
Sequence/Colloboration Diagrams (12 maximum) ........ 12

While I am still wondering, how did I lose my marks in class and component diagrams, I am very satisfied with my result.

Could you please let me know whats the next step? How will I get the certificate logo etc?

Hello Paul,
I have been struggling about how to start the Part II for quite sometime. Finally I went through some of the posts in Java Ranch and it really helped me. I initially used Sun Enterprise developer tool for my UML. This was great for my class diagram but the component diagram did not comeout good in this tool. I then used Jade for component and sequence digram needs.

Class diagram: I just used the extention of class diagram with more identified class separation and the SLSB as the facade. It just followed Mark and Cades book. For ex: User class can be separated to have a separate address class etc and the CreditCard class can use the same address class etc.

Component Diagram: I just showed all the identified components and the design patterns. I just showed design patterns also components. However, I have created component diagrams also for each use case to make it simple and easy to read.

Sequence Diagram: I just created sequence diagram for each sequence and did not create it for each use case. I just broken it down to little more from use case.

However, I had a separate html page with all the design assumptions and some explaination of why I chose certain design pattern etc.

Overall my navigation of the document was also very simple and easy. I really like my document flow very much.

Hello friends, here are the answers for 3 questions asked above....

1) Part III questions are very generic, such as, what kind of session management does your design support etc. Since you have got 90 mins for 4 questions, it would make sense to give clear information on why did you choose? Whats the advantage of your choice, is there any improvement scope? how can it support future enhancement etc.

2) I am already playing an architect role and I just needed a tag for what I am doing. I think, I got it now. I should think of my next step now.

3) Actually there was a spelling mistake, I meant to say JUDE Community edition. Here is the URL

Hi ravi,
Where do we show the design patterns used. Can we just document patterns to be used.



Thanks,
Vinod S

Hi Vinod

You can depict the patterns that you have used in the UML diagrams. You can mention the design patterns that you have used in your assumptions document.

Thanks

Hi Ravi,
In Sequence diagram do we need to show all the Entities being used for Business Operation performed on SLSB.

Hi Vinod

The sequence diagram shows the various processes or objects and exchange of messages between them. I would say keep your sequence diagram as simple as possible.

Thanks
