I wonder if I am interpeting Cade's component diagrams for the example assignment correctly.
I think he is depicting the Front Controller pattern yet has made the JSP components dependant on the controller component because, I assume, they invoke the controller via user's interactions. The strange thing about this though is that the Controller is supposed to invoke (display) the JSPs.
I would really appreciate it if someone would explain the motivation behind this layout, it seems counter-intuitive to me.
Also, in Cade's sequence diagrams, sometimes the Customer sends message to the controler (via HTTP) and sometimes JSPs are invoking the controller - what's that all about? And, I say I think that he is depicting a Front Controler because its the most stripped down strategy for Controler possible - no Business Helpers, Application Controlers, View Helpers etc.
Could someone wise to the ways of pleasing the assignment examiners tell me if I am unwise to be depicting something more elaborate than what I find in Cade's example?
I'm getting close to completing my assignment for about the third time and it disturbs me that I can't comfortably interpret Cade's example. Why is it that I don't get similarly confused when looking at, for example, Core J2EE Patterns or other J2EE patterns texts?

Hmmm. How to interpret this silence...
Well, anyway, I'm scheduled to take the part III 'exam' tomorrow, I'll guess I should know soon enough whether or not I needed to ask a question about this.
