The assg talks about the use of a 3-D modeling tool that can render images from XML. Does this run on the client (browser) aka, Flash or this is a third party server API aka, IText? What's your inference?

Do you plan to use a standard web framework or roll your own? Can you explain your answer?

Thanks!

I am assuming that this tool is built on a standard framework. Internal design of this tool such as if it uses iText to render a pdf, I believe is irelevent to this assignment.

I got the same assignement and many things are not that clear, like this issue with 3-D modeling tool.
Internal design of this tool is irelevant but how this tool communicate with our application will affect solution. And that is not clear from this assignement (java, C client API, SOAP, etc)

Its a visual component, no interaction from user is needed. As it simply transforms an xml and renders as either image, video or pdf.

Thanks Arine,
but don't you think that it should be known what API this tool provide for clients in order to integrate it into our sistem. Just knowing input and output data formats is not enough, we still should know what type of communication is used.
I guess we have to assume it is java API in the lack of explanation (or black box transformer)

And that's really the point. Being a good architect means knowing where to focus your attention, and where not to focus it.

That's what I am using as my assumption.

Also, 'providing strong visual feedback to the user' is of utmost importance. What are you guys planning to do for this?

Thanks!

careful guys - it's not "legal" to get too specific about your designs in a public forum - this is supposed to be "your" design, not a group design.


Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!

In a scenario where performance and scalability are important but the expected concurrent users is quite low, any one suggest not using business tier?

I wonder how ratings would be if we don't have business tier components in the assignment.

Any suggestions?

Hi ,

Generating XML as input to the 3D modelling tool is required in this assignemnet for viewing options(pdf, image etc..)
Now none of my use case talks about user using viewing options.

So should my assignmnet include solution to xml generation part?

I just recently got the assignment from Oracle for SCEA (or OCEA? ) and it is Factory Homes. Does anybody noticed that the first two use cases are almost identical? Isn't it a typo?

cheers,

No they are not identical. First is about searching the catalog and reviewing items and second is basically the second part of the first, when you've found a component you add it to design

I believe that this visual transformation is done at Inventory & Management System and returns the required format object. Can any body suggest what should be the approach for this.

No, as it already said - you create XML, send to this 3D Tool and it returns media in specified format. Inventory system is for getting availability info/validating house designs only.

Hi Dmitri,

I have seen your reply about 3D tool usage in the assignment. Thank you very much for clarifying that doubt.

Could you please see your coderanch inbox (your private messages link)? I have sent a mail to you.

Hi Folks,

Could anybody please clarify/suggest the right approach for the below doubts?

I am using JSF, EJB 3, JPA.

1. Do i need to show JSF backingBeans and listeners in Component, Class and Sequence Diagrams?

[Edit: Removed question on how to complete the assignment.]

3. Regarding key objects given in Business Domain Model in the assignment, Do we need to understand/treat them as EJB Entity Beans?


4. Here is my assumption about the business model.

A. Aperture is an empty class which is extended by Door and Window.
B. A Wall has one or more Door or Window.
C. House has a Roof, Foundation, one or more Wall.
D. Product has House.

based on this assumption, i assume that i should create a empty Product first then creating other house components (House, Roof, Foundation, Door, Window etc.) and keep adding them to empty Product.

Am i correct?


Can any body suggest me about my above given doubts?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
