Dumb question about part 2

Hi guys,
really sorry for this question, but I am still in the process of deciding whether to go for the SCEA certification or not and I have a rather basic doubt about part 2.
Looks like the only deliverables required are UML diagrams plus two more plain text deliverables. The question is: is there any coding involved in part 2? What approach do people use? Do they code a solution and then just submit the UML diagrams or just write the diagrams without any coding whatsoever?

From what i have followed at Javaranch..on part 2..i seriously doubt if anyone codes and reverse engineers the uml..i think the traditional approach of doing just fine..

on a side note, being a Head First fan..i strongly belive that there are no dumb questions...but only dumb answers..

Does mine qualify as one ?

Hi Rahul,
glad you recognized the "quotation" ;-)

I am reading Head First Design Patterns in these days.

Anyway, thanks for your answer that makes perfectly sense.

Thanks again,
I agree. Here's the link:
