This question is to the folks who used STARUML for creating sequence diagram and the assignment in general.

Did you manage to show the arguments being passed in the method calls in the sequence diagram. I am not able to ...

any pointers please.

thanks

Do you think, we need to show the method detail to the level of argument etc. I was just showing method signature.

I am using plain english phrases as the messages between objects, but, in some cases, I informed the Value Objects arguments.

To show the argument in StarUML do the following steps:

1 - Select the desired diagram.
2 - In the properties window, select the MessageSignature property to NAMEANDTYPE (it is a combo)

If you want, you can disable that irritating sequence numbers by clearing the mark ShowSequenceNumber.

Sequence numbers are more appropriate for detailed design sequence diagrams, not high-level architectural sequence diagrams, which are required by the assignment.

Cleuton, do you really think you can get away with plain english phrases. Don't you think they expect real method names?

TIA, D.

Hi,

Remember: I haven�t gotten my results. I don�t know whether I have passed in phases II and III. Maybe everything I am telling you is wrong.

Do you agree that this is a High-level architectural design? You do not have all the requirements and there are many shadow areas in the assignment.

If you are an architect, you are not expect to produce the detailed system design. This is a developer�s (or Systems Analyst) Job. So, how would you know all the necessary methods and their signature? How can you be sure that the interfaces of the classes are correct?

The important thing is to produce an overall architectural design that uses J2EE and satisfies the requirements for both clients (Web Customers and Travel Agents).

I have read many messages here, in the forum, and discussed with many people that has earned the certification. Some people have produced fine-grained detailed diagrams and have passed. But much more people have followed Mark Cade�s designs and produced simple diagrams, and they have passed too.

So, I decided to produce a minimalyst proposal, using plain english as messages.

I may be wrong. But producing detailed diagrams does not make sense for me as an architect (what I really am). If I am wrong, ok. I will modify my assignment and pay the ressubmition again.

If you are still not sure, read Mark Cade�s sample.
