Create Profile use case

Hi all,

I have a question regrading the use case "Create Profile".
In the use case diagram it is shown, but it is not a use case we must model in order to pass the assignment, right?
So what do we do? We just assume it is there? Do we have to come up with a component and sequence diagram for it after all?

Same question goes with the "View Frequent Flyer Miles". Of course we need to query the frequent flyer miles system some how, but we do not need to model that user case, do we?

Forget for a minute the assignment and ask yourself this question:

"As an architect, your designed architecture could be implemented without ask you for more details ?"

The main thing of an architecture is to provide a way that developers could implement the system without any doubts. If you agree that this approach could be meet without more details in that use cases, so go ahead, do not create those diagrams.

That's is one thing that Sun is going to test you ... you decision power!

Hi,

so some say it'll help to submit an extra component and sequence diagram for login and other say it may have a negative impact. What is "the" correct way to do it now? What does Sun except?
For the overall architecture it sure makes sense to have a component diagram that handles customer logon and creation of profiles etc. but it is not in the list of deliverables for the assignment.
