Clearly, Flight Search algorithm itself is out of scope. Yet, flights network that this algorithm operates on, is produced from our data model (for instance, sold-out flights should be excluded from search). Ideally algorithm should be pluggable and operate on data model common for graph theory (abstracted from flights). Also, flights network has interesting caching behavior - nodes are static (airports), edges can expire or become unavailable (sold-out).


All the above is pretty interesting architectural concern, don't you agree?

(May be the only interesting aspect in this assignment which, otherwise is pretty much like any other online store).


Regards,
Andy

Hi Andy,

The flight search algorithm is undoubtedly an important part of the assignment. However, I think we are expected to approach it from J2EE framework point of view and not from the graph theory side.

Hi,

I know a lot of people that have passed the exam (all 3 parts) and never thought about that.

You are thinking in fine-grained detail level.
