Part 2 Assigment use cases

In the assignment I got "factory homes", I observed that the STEPS for use cases 1 and 2 are alike. Isn't this a rare scenario - Basically the verbiage for use case 1 is the same as use case 2.
However both use cases serve a different goal. If I need to check the accuracy of such use case descriptions, what would I do?

Read them again. They aren't exactly the same.

Sorry. I actually meant that the steps under "Basic Flow" for the first two use cases are the SAME. The descriptions are correct. Meaning,

Use Case #1 and #2: <descrition for 1 and 2 is fine>

Basic Flow
1. same.
2. same
3.same
4.same

I got the same assignment one year ago with 4 use cases (#1 Search Component Catalog, #2 Add Item to House Design), the basic flows of these two are NOT the same as you described.
Maybe the question has been modified a little bit, but do you think the flows are reasonable? If yes I think you should keep going to do the assignment, else you can send a mail to the OCP team to clarify the issue

Jaquet,

Yes, That's the assignment I got too. The use case names match with what you had written. HOWEVER the BASIC FLOW for #1. Search Component Catalog and #2. Add item to design, the four steps
are exactly the same. I mean the verbiage is identical. So could you give me the email or phone # of OCP folks so that i can clarify?

Thanks

Thanks Jacquet. I've sent them email. Meanwhile I'm not sure if you could share the "Basic flow" for use case #2? Would that violate any non disclosure agreements? If you could, i can kind of
proceed with other use cases with certainty.

Hi Rodolfo,

I got an answer from Oracle Certification dept. Please try writing to them using that email. Sorry for the delay as I saw the response just now.

Good luck.

I was reviewing Mark Cade and Humphrey Sheil Part II, noticed that sequence diagrams didn’t meet the assignment requirement. As per the use case all public methods must be used in sequence diagram.

Class diagram is high level didn’t touch several implementation areas like DAO and Service call segments.

Final one is Component diagram is more generic, is this approach recommended to implement?

Please use those diagrams in the book as "templates". As for sequence diagrams and class diagrams...you need to use public method names in the sequence diagrams. These public names must be listed in the
class diagram.

Component diagrams need to include design pattern implementations and other important POJO's, servlets, ejb's etc. All diagrams need to be UML 2 compliant. Basically using the component diagram, you are trying to communicate the architecture, so you can decide what details need to be included.

i also got same assignment and find that use case-1 and use case-2 have different "brief description" but same "basic flow".
do you find any clarification for it from oracle. or is it fine?

They included TWO additional steps for the "Add Item to Design". Please write to them at

They are responsive.
