I successfully passed the ocmjea part-1 with 85%.
i have downloaded the assignment and started working on it.
I,m average in UML diagrams but i find in "mark and cade's" chapter nine a dummy assignment, where diagrams are quit oriented to j2ee only, like adding jsp pages in class daigrams, using jsp pages in sequence diagrams.
So i,m trying to follow it.
I need some guidelines from the already passed candidates regarding my assignment now and in future.
i want to know that
-which is the suitable diagram for implementing design patterns, and where to explain about design patterns.
-any book or web resources where i can get information for designing j2ee specific architecture

i need to discuss this,
1. The uses cases in my assignment(Factory homes) are talking about selecting component from category and then system responds with product details and availability/applicability of the product.
The question arises in my mind is that why product word is used here instead of component. are both are same? and I have to enlist it in our assumptions list.
Do the "Product class" in BDM is the same "product" used in the use cases or different.
2. The "Use case 1" and "use case 2" is using the word "current house design" for selecting and adding the component in the "current house design".
But actually, in the "Use case 3" the customer is selecting a "house design".
I want to know that what are those "house designs" which are used in use case 1 and use case 2, because the customer is getting chance to choose "house design" in use case 3.
In use case 1 and use 2 the customer is choosing components independent of the "house design" because he chooses the "house design" in use case 3.But the "step 4" in use case 1 and use case 2 is saying that:
"system responds with the product detail and availability/applicability of the product based on the current house design".
The last underlined sentence let me to understand that the customer had already chosen the "house design" which is not the case.
Anyone who had done the factory homes assignment can answer my questions easily.
i will try to answer your question,
as you are worrying about the occurrence of the word "current house design" in uc-1 and uc-2 and again selecting the "house design" in UC-3.
You can assume it in a way that the customer start by selecting a house design than components, after selecting components the customer changes his mind and chooses the new "house design" from the house design catalog.
This is the one way to interpret the given use cases.
