Hello every one:

I have been a silent participant in this forum. I passed part II/III with 78%, and I had passed part I with 85% two months ago.

The discussions in this forum were very helpful. Thanks to every one.

In general, I think there are some weaknesses about the grade mechanism of part II/II of the certification. Sun gives a grade about Component, Class and Sequence diagrams, but there is no explicit grade about architectural matters (scalability, performance,...) and how well the requirements are met.

To solve the assignment, I followed all of the advices given through the discussions in this forum, the BluePrints guidelines, the best practices and considerations in Core J2EE design patterns, but I don't (and possible will not) know where I was wrong. Also, I made a 12 page architecture document and documented my diagrams (maybe I did more than needed).

I got 42 in class diagrams, 27 in component diagrams, and 9 in sequence diagrams. I don't know if the person at Sun did't like the way I partitioned the component diagram in two to make it more understandable; or maybe I put many components.

Ok, I am certified now and I am happy for this achievement. Thanks again,

Hi,

Congratulations!

Yes, I agree with you, I too felt like I have satisfied all requirements and made sure that diagrams pertain to UML notation. I have 5+ years of J2EE experience and I architect and design a lot as part of my work. I was expecting 95+%, but all I got was 88%. Really, I don't know their expectations to make the architecture perfect.

But, pass is a pass. now, you are a certified J2EE Architect. That is enough to feel proud!

good luck,

Prasad

congratulations Fabio!

I think so too, additionaly I cleared the certification with exactly the same score part 1 with 85% and 2&3 with 78%, in my case the victim was class diagram, with only 27. So, I couldn't understand what may be wrong if components and sequence diagramas are good (39 and 12 respectively). This situation is very suspect.


But, you have passed...

Karen, I had 19 classes. The diagram class was technology independent.

I did two component diagrams, one generic and another use-cases specific; the first one had 10 components and the second one 30 components (I preferred to give detailed diagrams). Also, the components were grouped by logical tiers.

Manju, it took about 3 weeks for the part 2/3 results to appear in the web site. The web site url is http://www.certmanager.net/sun_assignment/assignment.html (the same site for uploading and downloading the assignment).
