Hi

I have started for part 2. I have read the forum and observed that mostly people mentioned that they have designed their own web application framework.
Since there are popular MVC based WAF like struts are available in market, can these be used of instead of designing own framework or SUN measures /expects framework architecture / skills in order to get higher score.

Thanks and regards

sivajothi,
I would recommend that you focus on creating an overall architecture that satisfies the requirements of the assignment instead of worrying about picking/creating a presentation framework. Based on my personal experience, a presentation framework is not required to obtain a high score.

Giri,

so you're saying it is good enough to show something like a FrontController and a DispatcherView pattern and a BusinessDelegate to show a MVC2 for the web client? Or does it have to be something more detailed and sophisticated (e.g. the WAF principles)?

I did not select or create any particular framework and stuck to the basics (similar to what you described/what is found in the Cade-Roberts book) and I passed with a high score. Here is my take on frameworks. Does the selection of a framework address a requirement in the assignment? I felt it did not and was too much detail and a distraction (after all, why stop at presentation frameworks? we could recommend frameworks for persistence, other J2EE frameworks etc). In a real world, we all know the benefits of frameworks and an architect would definitely recommend that they be used (and I am a big believer in frameworks myself). But for this assignment, the goal is to develop a solution that meets all the requirements (functional and service level requirements). As long as your solution does that, you should be set.
