Hi all,

I am almost done with my diagrams but have across this difficult situation (I should have thought it earlier for sequence diagrams but this still may be an issue for Class/Component Diagram).

Not all my diagrams fit in one page. I have two options here

Option 1- Make the images smaller but then the examiner will not be able to clearly see all the classes/components names (although the documentation would identify all these)

Option2 - Provide a link to the image and the examiner can zoom in as she/he may wish (I can document that but will Sun accept this option)

Has anybody come across this situation?

I would really appreciate any suggestion or work around for this problem.
Can anybody who has cleared or submitted the assignement share his/her thoughts on this?

Thanks,

Nirupam

P.S I am using Poseidon for UML Profession Edition. :roll:

I tended to show a link to the diagram. First of all, we should let SUN see our diagram clearly, right?

But I have not submited my assignment.
Maybe someone passed could comment on it?

Thanks.

Nirupam,

Do not worry about the size as long as the browser can render your diagram.

Mention this in the assumption section.

My diagrams were very big and I passed easily.

Hi Nirupam,

I totally agree with Deepak. Do not worry about the size. Just go on and modell your architecture.

Hi!

What I have done in JUDE to reduce my diagrams size is:
- Click in zoom out
- Click in Edit/Select All
- Click in Edit/Copy to clipboard
- Open MsPaint
- Click in Edit/Paste
- Save your image

You can zoom in or zoom out the diagram in Jude, copy to MsPaint and see the obtained results. Just try it!

I hope this could work for you. It worked to me. As a additional suggestion, save the image as PNG. Other hint: some better photo editor softwares can save PNG files using less KB. I used Paint Shop Pro, that is a good choice.

Hi folks,
I am not the HTML guru, but how do you provide the images of your diagrams in the index.html if not by html links to their .gif or whatever external image files?

I plan to provide links to .gif only. Did anybody do that and passed?

Originally posted by Nirupam Chatterjee:

Do you really intend to fit each diagram into one page of screen/paper?
- A screen can be 14" or 21"
- The screen resolution may extremely vary
- Paper size may be Din-A 4 in Germany or what else in GB, USA, ...
So I think that can not be necessary.

There is the image viewer Irfanview available (zooming provided but scrolling needed because zooming makes big diagrams unreadable).

Even Mozilla browser opens .gif image files correctly (scrolling needed, no zooming provided).

I assume they will be willing to scroll if needed. Did anybody pass /fail and can tell that they are not willing to scroll?
