Hi All,
Wonderful forum for the cert aspirants. Unfortunately I failed my part ii/iii by 2 marks. (Class Diag -24, Component Diag - 34, Sequence Diag - 10).
I couldn't believe how close I missed it. I am a bit confused on the re-submission and the next steps in fixing my design.
Could you all provide me some inputs. I really appreciate your time.
Overall Design:
1. I have created a class diag for each Client Tier, Session/Entity Beans (including Remote, Home interfaces) and the pre-existing apps.
2. Used Business Delegate, Session Facade as the patterns.
3. Used Business Events..
4. Document listing Assumptions/decisions..
Questions:
1. Can I re-work parts of my existing design and submit it. Or Do I have to come up with a entirely new design ?
2. I think I got hit badly on the Class diagrams. Was wondering if there are better/correct way to represent the logical modules. Any thoughts?

I hope I have not broken any norms of this forum, if so plz. excuse me.
Keep up the good work folks.
Thanks,
Sai Sri.

Hello Sai,
Thanks for sharing your results in the forum. You are giving us important feedback.
It looks like you are either missing some important entity classes or haven't properly/clearly modeled the relationships between the classes as per the expectations of the examiner. I would be inclined to start with the Class diagram and see how I can improve it. You may want to look at the Class Diagrams given in Mark Cade's book or other relevant examples such as the pet store and see what is amiss in your diagram. You may also want to add notes/comments to non-trivial areas in your diagram that are not self-explanatory, in case you haven't already done so.
Looking at your Sequence Diagram score, it looks like you have got your overall flow right. And you are almost there... painfully close to the cut-off for clearing the exam. I would go with including the necessary adjustments, adding comments/notes, looking for flaws and making corrections where it applies rather than re-hauling the design again.

Regards and Good Luck
Sridhar

Hi Sai,
Sorry to hear you failed, but you are so close that you shouldn't need to do much work to pass.

Can I re-work parts of my existing design and submit it. Or Do I have to come up with a entirely new design ?


All you need to do is re-work the parts of your assignment and resubmit it. You do not have to take the part III exam again.
Good luck.
Regards, Andrew
