You realize it was the weekend, right?

I don't understand the question. Are you asking whether the a component can contain multiple packages? Or if you can have multiple components spread across the same multiple packages?

Hi Jeanne,

Thanks for the reply.
my question is regarding the component diagram, I have been reading about component diagrams for the past one week and all the sources contradict the information.
In my component diagram I am showing packages which contain components, but these components are shared between packages, for example in presentation tier I have 3 packages each containing components, and I have two components which are in all three packages in paresentation tier. Is is ok to that components are shared between packages?

thanks a lot

Raj,
I see. I'm not sure about the exam, but in life that does happen in small applications. In larger ones, the packages stay separate.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
