To my beloved mentors: Thank you so much for your valuable inputs during my preparation.

Future Aspirants: Posted my notes below for your benefit

Here I wanted to share my inputs hoping to help in the best way.
Some times this kind of notes will confuse you ; it had happened so to me. Take your own approach after analyzing and digesting at high level����..
I did not care much on whether I should put only one Class diagram or more and the same with Component diagrams. I wanted to split diagram and give pointers to the examiner.
Also I don�t know what examiner liked in my presentation but I wanted to put here what liked in there

Please read from here�������..

I had my class digrams split into(4 parts):
1.ValueObject model as per BDM (Multipicity as per BDM, serialization and one parentVO)
Some write up to point of my intent mapping requirements
2.EJBs (SF(facade),SS,Entity,MDB); One Class Diagram only with LocalEJB classes. Just added for my satisfaction.

Some write up to for each component explaining and Model of MVC Service/ServiceType(EJB,POJO,WebService) and responsible for business process flow.

3.Last one showing request flow from servlet --> my request handler and BizDelegate and Facade.
Just to explain my intent of Controller of MVC

Tools Used: Altova

Component Diagram Have split into 3 Component Diagrams)

One diagram covering BizComponents with few use cases and one diagram with components covering remaining use cases.
Last one my composite pattern for UI; gave an
example with JSPs for web client. Explained few the approach for App client.

Depicted the components like EJBs, WebService, ScreenScrapper Utility as POJO service and communication between the components.
Have explicitly added stereo types at interface type and component level.

StereoType Interfaces: HTTPS ; HTTPURLConn+JSSE for an application; LocalEJB call ; RMI/IIOP; JDBC; JMS/MQ;SmTP;XML-RPC/HTTPS
StereoType Components: LocalEJB,StatefulEJB, Stateless EJB;JSP;POJO Service;

Tools : Visio only
There is an option in visio to add your own stereotypes at component and dependency/interface level.

I hope above info will help....I don't think we need to break our head by thinking whether to draw only one class diagram or more like that. As long as we feel from our heart that, "Yes Other person can understand my intention here; Keep in mind that examiner is not new for this assignment, no need to do too much spoon feeding to explain".

Last Memories:
1. I went through this forum before begining layingout my design. Once I hucked my approach; I was bit nervous to go through forum due to different opinions but valid. I wanted to stick to mine until my submission.
2. I realized before going to write Part-111 exam that our answers in Part-III should be w.r.t the design and architecture submitted in part-II. So I was answering my questions in Part-III such way that explaining the components name and role to justify Part-III answers.

I hope my inputs will help you to makeup your strategy and focused direction. Sorry for any typos.....
