The requirement says one (could be a big one). But I saw some people created a few of them?
Thanks in advance.

Create as many as you need...
I started off with the intention of creating three separate class diagrams and finally ended up putting them together into one. I don't think it matters either way.

In my design I had many class diagrams. By many class diagrams i mean
- A Class diagram to map the Controller Classes
- A Class diagram to map the DAO Classes
- A Class diagram to map the client swing UI
Classes
- A Class diagram to map the Entity bean Classes
- etc etc
the number of classes or class diagrams depends on how you design your system or what details you want to show in the UML diagrams.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
