Finally the results came out. After more than 2 months. I had some trouble uploading my assignment due to large size of the file. Sun folks indicate the file size should be less than 400k- not mentioned in the requirements of course. Mine was 2400K. I think Dan had mentioned his file was 1800K and he had no problem with uploading. I had to send the assigment as email attachment- that got lost. But finally the results came thru.
On the technical side- I used the petstore as a model. Sun probably expects you to do that.
My 2 cents.
Thanks all
Sanjay

Congratulations!
Can you please share some more details? I am working on part two right now. Did you make your diagrams, especially class diagrams, really down to the details of methods and attributes? What about those things that can't be easily described or shown in class diagrams? For example, how did you describe that a class is talking to another class through XML-RPC over HTTPS? Merely through notes?
Thanks a lot.
Michael

1. Class diagrams- I made detailed class diagrams. I think one should not. Calss diagrams is the only section I lost points. I used TogetetherJ- it has all or nothing kind of a thing- you can not selectively hide or show individual methods in a class. I also had all the classes incl some not so important ones.
2. To answer your other issue- I had added a Deployment diagram- that is not a requirement. I indicated those other kinds of things there- these cant't be a part of the class diagram.

Hi Sanjay,
Can you please answer for these? How much time did you take to complete the assignment? Have you gone through each and every class of pet store? Or is it enough if I study the chapter 10 in blueprints and understand pet store model? How did you interface with the frequent flyer system? And also how you designed the diagrams to show both java application client and web client? Thanks a lot in advance for the answers,
Adithya.

Adithya:
1. The amount of time you would take depends on your background experience etc. I took 4 weeks. If you are basing your design on PetStore- you should study the app in great detail- more than just reading Ch. 10.
2.Interfacing with the Frequent Flier System- This is CGI system- you should be able to call CGI from Java. Since you are not "implementing" - in terms of code. You just can make convenient assumptions.
3. The Java Client is also a class(es)- so you should be able to draw it in the class diagram.

Way to go Sanjay !
Great job. I am currious about part III, what is the level of the 4 questions asked ? Did you have enough time to answer all of them ?
Cheers,

You have more than adequate time. Part III is a cake walk- no preparation or anything is reqd.

Dear Ruilin,
I haven't looked at 'Petstore' yet but I remember that it is explained in details in the SUN blueprints (BTW everyone who try to pass the Architect certification should at least read that )


If you look at the table of contents, surprise !chapter 10 of the blueprints is dedicated to 'Petstore'

Cheers,

Chris,
Thanks for the message.
I do spend some time on the Blueprint. But not a lot of time on the Petstore. N-Tier architecture is a familiar topic. So I did not pay much attention to it.
I got my assignment downloaded. I had a quick look. I am thinking to do a quick design and then to refine it. I will start from user cases.
From my quick look, I understand we have to completely re-do the main application (Cobol stuff), then treat other help applications as legacy integration ?
Please comment and correct my understanding.
Thanks in advance
P.S.
I just traveled to Comdex-2001 and attended tutorials/technical sessions for about a week. I thought I might have a chance to go some siminars on Architect certification. But there was no such siminars. There was only for programmers and many people were attending the programmer certification seminars. Certification is a still active area!
