cade/sheil - sample solution issues

The Cade/Sheil study guide was a great help for part 1. For part 2/3, I found it mostly useful. I had some issues with the "fully worked solution" though. I'd like to use this thread for people to brainstorm issues they see in the provided solution. It's going to be up to individual exam takers to decide whether to follow this or improve their own.

Here's what I recall. There were a couple other things that bugged me, but they aren't jumping to mind right now. I plan to reply to this thread as I come across things in this forum that jog my memory. I hope others will add their own as well so this serves as a reference to others using Cade/Sheil.

For me issues fell into a few categories:
Category #1 - I've never seen anybody do that in the real world (I think the exams want what the authors did though)
  • Who puts JSPs in a class diagram?
  • I think the component diagram is too detailed.

  • Category #2 - UML syntax type errors
  • Class diagrams - some relationships don't show a multiplicity
  • Component diagram uses UML 1 style (whereas earlier in chapter uses UML 2 style)

  • Category #3 - Other oddities
  • Missing classes in class diagram that are referred to from other diagrams
  • I don't think the class diagram in the book is worth 40 points

    Actually, I realize this should be a wiki page:
    I agree. Here's the link:
