Just a new comer simple question: Which UML version is used in SCEA5.0?

Recently I finished reading UML Distilled 3rd which is talking about UML2.0. Is this the version they are using in SCEA now?

The other thins is I know some people said UML is still in SCEA5.0 beta part 1.
http://javaxcross.blogspot.com/2008/03/how-to-pass-scea-5.html

But as far as I could see, there is no UML mentioned in SCEA5.0 CX-310-052 Assignment Objectives.

http://www.sun.com/training/catalog/courses/CX-310-052.xml

I tried to save your time and search it in FAQ. But no info is found.

Thanks in advance.

Well, UML is mentioned in Part 2 Assignment Objectives, but nothing about which version...

You are correct, Phase 1 of the SCEA test was not UML specific, but it does not help for you to be a little familiar with it , in understanding Design Patterns.


Phase 2/3 is specific with UML, It states it must be UML comliant, but not which version, so I suggest you state which version of UML you are using, and what apendages to the UML you are using.

Thanks for reply first.

Yes, I know it's in part2/3.

Does it mean I will not see any UML questions in part1?

But I still have the question about which version they are using in SCEA5.0? Can anybody answer me this kind of question?

The answer is: in SCEA 5.0 (at least in the beta), there's no mention about a specific UML version.

I think it doesn't matter, you can do it in any version. Just make sure to do uml compliant.
I used uml2 (enterprise architect) for scea-5-beta and I had no problems.

I love the concept of "Frames" which was introduced IIRC in UML 2.
So, I would recommend to use UML 2.
(Although Sun does request explicitly any specific version of UML).

Let me clarify something, the first part contains questions about design patterns, security, design concepts, and maybe could include some questions about Object Oriented Design, so, you must know how a inheritance should be draw in a UML diagram, but this will not relies to UML 2.0, or any other version.

In the second part, the assignment, you must know very well about UML and you must create your architecture using UML, but they does not specified which version, and I don't think that have anything to do with the subject of the test. If you must do a write essay you must know how to write it, but they will not evaluate your english skills, the same is with the architect test, you must know how to write a design but they will not evaluate your profiency in UML, the UML is a tool to express your ideas.

Ops.. A typo.. Should read:

(Although Sun does NOT request explicitly any specific version of UML).
