- Used Poseidon for UML Community Edition ( free download from http://www.gentleware.com/ ) for making the diagrams.
- The audiocast "How to Build an E-Commerce Application Using JavaTM 2 Enterprise Edition, (J2EETM ) Platform" was very helpful. Here is the link to the audiocast.
http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/onlineTraining/webcasts/webcamp/cmcdonald.html .
- The Java Petstore sample application was very helpful.
- There is plenty of information on J2EE patterns and UML on the web. I just went over the core J2EE patterns and learnt how they can be applied the assignment.

Hi Jas,
I guess the best way to get started is to go through some of the posts in this forum. I was able to get answer to most of the questions that i had by doing a search in this forum.
I guess there is no definite answer on how much time it might take to finish the assignment. It just varies from person to person and depends how much experience or background you already have in varous topics that the assignment is based on.
For the Prerequisites refer to Java Certification Details

Mannu, how would you compare the level of detail in your solution compared to the level of detail Cade gives in his study guide for his part2 case study solution?

Hi Kartik,
I just went over the architectural overview, api documentation and browsable source code to get an idea on how the perstore example used DAO, Request Handlers, Events, Screen Flow, Controllers, Main Servlet, Signin/Signout etc and how the example applied the core J2EE design patterns.

Hi Richard,
I submitted the assignment after around 4 month of downloading it and used to work on it whenver i found time for the assignment but never recorded how many hours i would have spent on it.
Next I plan to appear for the BEA weblogic certification exam and have started preparing for it. My guess is that i will take the test after 4 months.
How about you.
Ashish.

Hi Tom,
In my solution i have provided much more detail than the case study in Mark cade's book. In my class diagram i have shown the attributes and methods (not the getters and setters but the important ones) for the classes which is missing in mark cade's book. Moreover, the class diagram in mark cade's study guide shows no classes for controllers, events, DAO, request processros and dispatchers, bean home and remote interfaces, value objects etc.
Ashish.
