Hi All,
I am facing a strange sort of issue.

I have some binary data (consisting of a set of floating point numbers), which i am encoding using Base64.encode to convert to a Character.

I put the data in some temporary storage(DB), and getting it back for processing.

When i get the string back, i decode it back using Base64.decode, and get a byteArray.

In order to read the float data, i am using

The data that i am getting using the above code, and the data which i get using directly reading from the file, is totally different.

The data in myfloat and myfloat2 list is entirely different.

Am i doing something really stupid here ?

P.S. I haven't touched Java for last 6 years, so kind of rusty at the moment! I will get there slowly but surely

10 years ago
Thanks a lot for the wishes...

The question regarding Class Diagram and Component Diagram is quite interesting.. Infact, i was really worried about my component diagram, however was extremely sure about the correctness of my class diagram. Class diagram was split for EJB's, Value Objects, Utilities etc.

There were two component diagrams, one was general about the overall framework, and the other one showed the components in detail.

Hi All,

Alhamdullilah, I have passed part II and III. It took me less than a month, where i spent better part of my weekends. Probably, around 40 Man hours of effort has gone into the assignment.

I don't know why I lost so many marks in class diagrams, when I thought it was near perfect.

This report shows the total points that could have been awarded in each section and the actual amount of points you were awarded. This information is provided in order to give you feedback on your relative strengths on a section basis.
The maximum number of points you could have received is 100, minimum to pass is 70.

Class Diagram (44 maximum) .......................... 32
Component Diagram (44 maximum) ...................... 40 Sequence/Collaboration Diagrams (12 maximum) ........ 9

I would like to convey my heartfelt thanks to this forum which has been an essential part of my preparation during the time.


Did you receive your grade via email ? when did you submit your assignment ?

Do you get an Email from Sun regarding the passing of your assignment ?

What i feel is that Part-III doesn't really matter... The question pool is around 8-10 questions.
I think this forum can also act as a guide, as to what to buy and what not to buy... Comments from people, seems like Lordsen material is just another money earning thing....
Well I have heard from People who have used their material, that it is basically incomplete sort of stuff... Plus they never reply, to any feedback questions that you ask them... All in All a pathetic stuff, and a big no-no for any one looking to buy the material...

Plus one thing that I always find strange is how these people balantly offer cheating material. And on top of that, present that they have 99.7% passing rate with no facts to backup the claims...

For any one doing the assignment, I would suggest putting more effort yourselves, and then if possible ask for peer-reviews from other Java Gurus..

Nice to have you back... Good luck on everything you are doing....

Heartiest Congratulations !!!

Good luck for future as well
Thanks a lot Andrew!! I'll put my question up again.

The instructions.html states that we have the following deliverables
* Class Diagram
* Component Diagram
* Sequence of Collaboration Diagram
* Assumptions list..

Now i have the option to make an index file linking to the diagrams.

I have tackled the assignment in a different way, where i have one master file, containing various sections, such as analyze, design, etc etc.

At the top I have a Table Of contents and a Table of Figures with hyper-links of the contents and figures. I have as many as 25 figures. Please let me know if submitting assignment in this manner is fine. I have lots of text, including how and why i have separated system functionality with several modules.

Looking forward for a response from all SCEA's

Thanks in advance,
