In the Part 2 exam, where to put my design consideration ? for example, I want to explain why I want to use service locator pattern, I should put it into Sequence Diagram part , Assumption part or the other place ?

I put the design considerations under Assumptions.

My Assumptions had sub-titles:
- Domain model (assumptions)
- Use Cases (assumptions)
- Design decisions
- Java EE Version and frameworks

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Similar to Katrin, I had sections of comments. I err'ed on the side of writing to much. After all, I don't know what the grader will want more info on. This turned out to help me for part 3 as well since I had already thought out a lot of what they asked.
