I finally made it! The score is not what I was expecting, but I'm still satisfied:
Grade: P Score: 87 Comment: This report shows the total points that could have been awarded in each section and the actual amount of points you were awarded. This information is provided in order to give you feedback on your relative strengths on a section basis. The maximum number of points you could have received is 100, minimum to pass is 70. Class Diagram (44 maximum) .......................... 36 Component Diagram (44 maximum) ...................... 39 Sequence/Colloboration Diagrams (12 maximum) ........ 12
I lost a lot of marks in my class diagram, not sure why - I spent most of time on it and it looked perfect for me, but anyway that's fine.
My solution was based on EJB 3, JPA and JSF combined with JSP. All my diagrmas were very detailed and most of the component and sequence diagrams were split in tiers.
I used a number of GoF and J2EE patterns - all justified in my doc.
My advice: Trust yourself and forget about what others say. Read as much as you like in this forum then when you really start your solution, FORGET about this forum! It might mess you up! When you're satisfied, then wait one more week and look at your solution again. If you're still satisfied by that time, wait one more week then look it again. If it pass your honest judment, then you're ready to go. No rush with it.
Good luck for those who are still taking it and congrats for those ones who were patient enought to get this!

Part III is really piece of cake. Pretty easy if you really built your solution well and addressed the requirements. I spent arround 45 minutes writing for the 4 questions.
My suggestion before you go for the essay exam:
Make sure you understand very well the 8 non-functional requirements : scalability, security, performance, etc.
Make sure you have a clear understanding on the persistence approach you have chosen for your solution.
Make sure you know how to handle user session and so as well as you're able to justify your solution
You must have a very good understanding on how your system works and how client tiers talk to business tier. You should never save time on thinking your solution over and over. The more you think it over, the more you'll be able to refine and understand what you're doing.
There's no big deal with part III - The success on part III depends only on how well you have addressed the requirements as well as you understand both JEE and your approach.
