Got my score today (after almost 6 weeks of waiting)
Class Diagram (44 maximum) .......................... 41
Component Diagram (44 maximum) ...................... 42 Sequence/CollAboration Diagrams (12 maximum) ........ 12
All these "Passed scea" topics helped my motivation :-)
My biggest problem was figuring out level of details. At some point I even had to change my design and make payment processing synchronous to avoid extensive documentation :-)
For example, I only mentioned that all appropriate components should use well-known ServiceLocator/BusinessDelegate patterns and omitted all this stuff from diagrams.
Congrats! That's an ideal and satisfiable exam result...
As you know, we should apply the class diagram in different levels, they are analysis and design level. Do you think we should apply the sequence diagrams for both class level and component level?
BTW, how long did you complete your Part II exam project and diagrams? It's one month or two months.
I'm looking forward to your reply! Thanks a lot!

To make my sequence diagrams readable, I made them simple and small. I limited their width to fit an average computer screen and used SD-frames a few times. Most of participants were components. The largest sequence diagram had 8 participants.

What about the component diagram, did you indicate your Service Locators, etc. there?
...or did you just state in your assumptions that you were going to be using them?
Yes. That was the only place I showed them. But again, in contrast to Cade book, I showed all JSP pages as one component - "JSPs".
BTW, because I'm still studying the Ripple methodology, and prepare to join the SCEA part II exam, so is it to convenient to ask you how long did you spend for completing the PART II exam?

Congratulations. Good achievement.What type of relationship you showed in Component Diagram? Only dependency?or association, generalization, realization etc as in class diagram?
Component diagram showed only dependency. Showing other relationships would have resulted in much more detailed diagram.
