Hypothetically speaking, my assignment, oops I mean client presented me with a use case diagram consisting of several use cases. However, he/she/it gave me use cases described in detail only for some of those in the use case diagram. Should I assume that I�m only responsible for those that have been described in detail or all those that comprise the whole application according to the use case diagram?
If #1 how the **** am I supposed to come up with 44 class diagrams for such a small number of use cases.
Thanks AGAIN,
David.

Hi,

Your class diagramm hat to be created according to (all) the business requirements.

If #1 how the **** am I supposed to come up with 44 class diagrams for such a small number of use cases.

The number of class diagrams doesn't depend on #1 or #2 of your question. Nobody has to submit 44 class diagrams. Maybe you are a little bit confused. You can achieve maximum 44 points for your class diagram(s), regardless of the number of class diagrams you submit. If you submit only one class diagram which fulfills the functional requirements then you may got 44 points. Same as with the component diagram(s), there you can get also a maximum of 44 points. And eventually 12 points for the sequence diagrams.

I couldn�t agree more.

Thomas,
I'm totally kidding. I just could not believe that I misunderstood the requirements in such a silly manner.
Thanks for setting me straight.
Good luck on your career as an architect.
Thanks,
David.
