When you download your assignment, it will tell you what deliverables are required, and how they should be provided.

Well there is no standard so called "template". It happens only in an organization that we have a MS Word template for Requirements, Architecture, Design and Test Cases document.
Your assignment will tell you what all you need to provide as part of your deliverable.

This is what i have used for my submitted assignment. May be you can visualize what could be a template from this:
Candidate Name :
Prometric ID :

I have used SeaMonkey( for creating this entire html. Didn't liked MS Word to generate HTML as it generate a lot of un required overhead and make the html bulky. Though i used the terminology from Word like heading H1, H2 , H3 etc....and used SeaMonkey to generate and update index/TOC.

Hope this helps.

In fact my assignment list is very small compared to the mentioned above details and in assignment it is mentioned in Deliverables section, submission as to be in a desired format.

It has to be with the index.html in where you mention your name, oracle Id and all related diagrams like:
Class Diagram, Component Diagram, Deployment Diagrams followed with sequence/collaboration diagrams,
Risks and Mitigation and Assumptions.

Yep, I just finished my assignment one or two months ago (that's why I proudly put my certification in my signature ;) ) and the list contents for my submission is definitely less involved than what's suggested above. I had:

  • Class diagrams
  • Component diagram
  • Sequence diagrams
  • Deployment diagram
  • Details about deployment diagrams, such as hardware specs
  • Capacity estimates to motivate hardware specs
  • Sequence diagrams for the usecases in the assignment
  • Design assumptions
  • Design decisions
  • Risk list

  • That was all. Note that I've stuck closely to what the assignment specified.

    The assignment requires you to specify a list of the most important risks. This is a very vague request, in my opinion. Considering that I passed, I think you should pay close attention to what Cade and Sheil say on this in their book. I'm quoting off the top of my head (but I read it many times ): "A breach of security would be a major risk for just about any project, the risk that your web-site is viewable in different kinds of browsers is not. All in all, it can be said that the risks for just about all different kinds of assignments should be rermarkably similar." That means that the risk list should have general items, such as security.

    Ah - and one more thing: In retrospect, I do think that I have spent too much time (and I may have provided excessive detail on) the deployment and hardware specification. Look at the points you can score for this: Not so many. So while you can tweak your capacity estimates and your suggested hardware profiles endlessly, you should know when to stop.
