~28 Classes
~35 Components
~8 Sequence Diagrams

J2EE Patterns Used:

I kept the design simple, wrote assumptions.

I finished my Part one, almost one and half year back, then was very busy,
Last month I started preparing for part 2 and following path I chose:
1. Read the use cases for one week
2. Started with drawing sequence diagrams
3. Revised the sequence diagrams
4. Started on class diagram
5. Revised class diagrams
6. Thought about application client and drew some sample diagrams
7. Finished class diagrams
8. Component diagram was easy after these

I submitted my assignment and very next day I gave the part 3 as I wanted to finish it as early as possible.

I think the assignment is difficult but once you figure out the BDM everything starts to fall in place.
The same happens in real life also.

thats why before even starting on any UML, one should pay proper attention to each use case mentioned.

To understand the BDM I searhced the entire JavaRanch SCEa forum.
It helped me immensely.
Well thats just my view.

Hope this helps.

Congratulations Aanand

Can you tell me how detailed you made your class diagram in regards to specifying method parameters, return values, attribute types etc.
