Hi All

I've been lurking here for a couple of months and today passed part 2/3 of the SCEA with 94% and thought I try and give a little back.

The maximum number of points you could have received is 100, minimum to pass is 70. Class Diagram (44 maximum) .......................... 41 Component Diagram (44 maximum) ...................... 44 Sequence/Colloboration Diagrams (12 maximum) ........ 9

My main point is the volume of the submission. I did the bare minimum; my assumptions were about a page and half (mostly a v short discussion on the design patters used, how session control works etc). The only extra diagram I submitted was a deployment diagram, and for the others I put together one of each i.e. 1 class (15ish classes, no methods or attributes), 1 component (20ish components) and a 4 UML diagrams.

I think you need to remember who the audience is, understand what they are looking for and include it, be confident. To me the more detail you include the greater the room for error � detail comes from the doing, from problems you encounter while you actually put a system together. If you spend to much time focusing on low level problems, you�re missing the point � and probably send yourself crazy. Get the concepts right and the message across.

For an idea of the diagram style required I used Sun�s online examples, Pet shop etc and Cade�s study book.

BTW I waited four weeks for the exam result, had no reply so emailed the program, received a reply and a week later my result was posted.

Good luck, any questions please let me know.

Matt

Congratulations Matt! I appreciate your feedback.

Could you share some of your ideas regarding how you chose to deploy your system among the given hardward configuration, ie, what runs on which boxes? I hope the discussion is allowed in this forum. Thanks.

Hi Matt,

Congrats.

Well I have a question ... How did you implement Authorisation and Authentication for both the clients ? Did you show that in Diagrams or just documented it.

Also I have already posted this question in this forum, But no reply from the passouts ..

Did you use Java Web Start for your Application Client ?

Thanks,

Senthil
