Hello Ranchers,

Just download my brand new assignment for part II. The use case diagram shows 6 use cases but it brings the description of only 4 of them!!!

What about those ones that are in the diagram but does not bring any description? Should I disregard them for the design?

Thanks in advance

Me thinks its part of the incomplete requirements from business analyst.
Maybe somebody else can shed some light on this question.

Come on? Everyday we see people here completing part 2/3... Has anybody had this kind of assignment? I have 6 use cases, and 4 descriptions. Let me clarify that:

Actually I have 7 use cases. One of them is included by other two:

(do thing 1) --- includes ---> (do thing 0)
(do thing 2) --- includes ---> (do thing 0)

Actor 1 ---- (do thing 1) ---- Actor 2
Actor 1 ---- (do thing 2) ---- Actor 2
Actor 1 ---- (do thing 3) ---- Actor 2
Actor 1 ---- (do thing 4) ---- Actor 2
Actor 1 ---- (do thing 5) ---- Actor 2
Actor 1 ---- (do thing 6) ---- Actor 2

So, we have 2 actors and both of them are connect to the same usecases.

However the Usecase details came with only 4 links for four detailed use cases descriptions:

do thing 0 details
do thing 1 details
do thing 3 details
do thing 4 details

Does that mean that I have to come up with some made up details for the missing ones, or I just keep those missing ones in mind but go only for the detailed ones?

Please, help me envision what to do

Thanks

The answer is provided in the FAQ (There are ambiguities to the exam in order to allow you latitude in how you solve the problem. You are being tested not only on your knowledge of Java, but also on your problem solving ability). Though it mentions developer exam it holds good for SCEA too. Hence document your assumptions and proceed.

So it means that I should make assumptions regarding the not detailed use cases and come up que a sequence diagram for them as well?

Thanks

Your class/component diagrams should include classes/components that are related to the use cases that are not detailed.

Regarding sequence diagrams i guess few have obtained full marks (12/12) by just considering the detailed use cases.
