Hi All ,
After many months I finally started putting my class diagrams in place .
I have some questions about it .
I have defined only attributes in my classes .I have only domain level objects .Is it necessary to put methods also. Would those methods really be like actually method calls when doing the sequence diagram or they can be like statements . I would still be doing sequence diagram at the domain level .Some one please correct me if that is the wrong approach for the sequenece diagrams.
For the component diagram I will be taking the approach
A Component Identification Pattern . I read many different options but only this particular article really clarified how /what of components.

Did any one try using that yet and does it work all right for defining components
Thanks
Dhiren

Looking at the requirements doc that Sun gives , it is seems like they are focused more on the physical components that make up the system . There is a mention of JSPs etc in the Component diagram . So the component identification pattern that your link points to is an excellent technic to use to get to the solution , but submitting it as a solution ??? I would really try to enhance it to include all that was requested in the requirements doc .
By the way I have just submitted it so I do not know my own results , so take my advice with a spinch of salt.
bye

Thanks kpt,
Yes ,
I will be enhancing it the link I posted I will use it to start components designing as I was not getting any where with any approaches I searched on.
Do I need methods in my class diagrams.
For sequence diagrams can I do at a domain level or do I need to go one level deeper like desiging for a developer to develop upon.
I was assusming the component diagram is what would be for developer communication from a design standpoint. Can any one give there feed back if this approach is correct
Thanks everyone
DJ
