I'm slightly confussed about what needs to be shown in the Component Diagram. Should DTO's and Factory classes be included?

Also I'm wondering if the diagram maybe overally complex due to the amount of individual delegates and facades show. Did anyone break the diagram down into multiple diagrams or just show one delegate and mention which would need implementing?

Cheers,
Matt.

Matt,

The essence of the certification, is to design and architect an solutions, for the development team member (of course, an imaginary development team).

So, the quantity of details that should be added in the diagrams (any diagram), belongs only for your choice. You need put something in the diagrams, that, if you would be the developer, i could try to read the diagrams, and you should be able to develop the solutions, without any more details.

You you think that it is primmer, put delegates to clear the developer understanding, no problem, and do not worry about the size of the diagrams, you can pick up it if you wish.

I have seen a lot of posts related to the same question, and, i could give this tip for all the ranchers: The scorer will be an developer. Hi should look to your diagrams, and he have to be able to understand it. There is no 'right way' to do the diagrams, there is only the 'understandable way' to do the diagrams.

Keep this in mind, and you will be sucessful in the assignment.

best regards,

Thanks for your reply Ricardo. You're right that the component diagram needs to be understandable. I just hope I can get the balance right between making it understandable and making sure I include everything I need to.

Cheers,
Matt.
