Hi,

I have extended the BDM to include domain classes missed out in the existing BDM so the size of my current BDM is around 15.
Added to the above DAO + Interfaces + Controller classes + Supporting classes, the number of classes are more than 50 and the class diagram looks bit cluttered. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Sanjay

In my opinion, the class diagram must be neutral of technology and programming language.
My class diagram shows only the domain classes, the core business.

Design patterns, EJBs, JSPs, frameworks, and things like that can be represented in the component diagram.

Thanks,

I tried to base my class diagram on Cade's class diagram where session bean was used

Sanjay,
I agree with Luciano's Comments about class diagrams. However, Cade played a part in the setting up of the exams which is a worry. Therefore, I think class diagrams must be open to interpretation. Fowler has mentioned this in his book about UML.
Make a decision - copy Cade or follow Luciano (Luciano's way is the mainstream).
