Passed SCEA

Hi all,
I received an email from oracle today congratulating me on passing SCEA. The sun certification database shows that I have passed the exam but the certmanager site is still not updated.

Thanks everybody for your valuable insights.

Heres my take on the passing this exam
1. I DID NOT CHANGE the provided domain model. In other words I maintained the relationships between the different entities in the domain model. I did add a few classes to the domain model but in doing so I was careful to maintain the original relationships.
2. BEING SIMPLE YET COMPLETE
I did not get bogged down on details of the actual layout of the GUI screens but rather concentrated on the business functionality these screen must fulfill. Using AJAX or not as a communication style between the browser and the server does not make or break the solution. So I did not elaborate on this.
I made sure that the UML diagrams were complete and consistent across all types of diagrams; Component, Class and Sequence. In other words, all the artifacts in the class diagram were accounted for in the component diagram and all the methods in the sequence diagrams were present in the class diagrams.
3. I used standard J2EE design patterns along with GOF patterns in my solution and explained briefly why I used them.

First Congrats!
Sorry I keep asking this question to everyone who posts this message :-(
Can you tell how long it took for them to send you this email (from the time you uploaded/emailed your assignment.)

I submitted the assignment via email. I got an email from Oracle asking me to attach the assignment in the email and send it back.

The email that I got from Oracle was different from the one listed on the certmanager site.
