Question(s) regarding SCEA part 2

Hey Guys!

I know that this question is recurring every now and then, but just wanted to have some precise answers.
These questions really have been pondering me for sometime. I am sure that your answers would greatly be appreciated by all those people who are freshers and aspiring to the SCEA part 2 realm in the future

1) Once I have download the assignment from Sun' site, should I build the solution for the application explicitly. For instance, if the application is going to be a web application, should I have to create my web app, related servlets and JSP implementations or HTML files and related java script files, write the required configuration and then build my UML solution based on the application?

All my other questions are based on my question 1.

2) If I have to create an application, should that be in a working condition? For instance, screen for user login and subsequent authorization then showing up an message in case of invalid entries else showing up the next screen. etc etc

3) So if my question 1 & 2 are right completely, then comes my next question. Should we also submit our complete source code, deployment information etc etc in the assigment?

Thanks

I don't see anything wring with creating small spike solutions for pieces of functionality you're unsure about. The scope of that is obviously entirely up to you. However, you're meant to be working, i.e. making technical decisions, in the analysis and design phase, not getting bogged down in implementation.

Thanks very much for the reply, Wright.

This makes me think again. Assume, the assignment is about a bookstore's basic implementation. Should i create an application (working) design which would have the servlets and the implementation of the business logic, JSPs, EJBs, HTML etc as the case may be or should I provide the documentation with the assisting UMLs alone!!

Now just to differentiate the points about my question: Should I create a sample project with all the requied components like servlets, JSPs etc or is it enough that I visualize a project ( I can assume that there would be a servlet which would have a call to a business logic component which in turn returns the control to a JSP etc etc and then provide this visualization in form of UML)

Thanks

Srinivasan,

Part II involves producing UML - there's no code to hand in.

Yes Wright, bingo!! You are correct!!

I still have not download the assignment. To be frank, little bit nervous about downloading the same, reason being I just wanted to know the depth of the lake before getting into the lake

From your question, I understand, you are trying to say that once I download the assignment, the information which comes along with the assignment are clear enough in proceeding with the assignment! Am I right?

Thanks

Yes and no. Yes in the sense the information is very explicit about what you have to produce, i..e. the specific types of diagrams and the marks allocated to them. No in the sense the requirements are quite woolly in some areas. You have to make assumptions. Rationalising these assumptions can be tricky, especially if your working in an unfamiliar domain.

Thanks once again Wright.

So if I have an assignment, should i have to implement any method at all in a class file? I mean, i am not talking about mentioning the methods in class diagram. Its only the actual implementation of the same in the java class file which makes me get confused. There was another post in this forum, where in a gentleman was talking about uploading jar files and HTML, Images, src files. Now, that post made my doubts go further deep!!!

Thanks

Your UML diagrams will ultimately end up as image files. Your supporting documentation is in HTML format. You submit your work as a JAR file. In this sense, the JAR is simply an archive (i.e. a zip file with the .jar extension). It doesn't contain source code.

All of this is covered explicitly in the assignment.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
