All,

I have not posted on this forum before, but have read many of the other posts. My scores were:
Class Diagram (44 maximum) .......................... 39
Component Diagram (44 maximum) ...................... 39
Sequence/Colloboration Diagrams (12 maximum) ........ 12

I overdosed on the Sequence Diagrams. This we due to my background as a converted flowchart analyst. I missed five points on each of the class and component diagrams. They go hand in hand. I think that I missed some classes, and therefore, some components.
In my opinion, the assignment requirements were written so vague, just like I am used to in real-life work situations. Just decide what you think the requirements mean and go with it. I think they are looking for completeness of the solution. I used MS Visio for the sequence and component diagrams and Oracle's JDeveloper (free) for the class diagram. I used that because it is a pure Java tool. Visio is too .NET-centric for me.
Pay attention to how the assignment is scored!! CLASS and COMPONENT diagrams are 88% of it. I used UML 2 notation in the sequence diags. and put some deployment diagram boundaries in my component diagram to show some system level requirements.
Part III was simple if you actually toiled over PartII. It is just some questions to see if you thought your solution through.

Good luck to those who are still in the middle of this assignment. All things considered, it seems to be a pretty fair test of one's architecting ability.

Regards,
Steve

Good job! I'm not sure if you read the other thread, but I submitted II and tested out of part III today myself. I used StarUML and I think I went a tad over on the seq diagrams.

Congrats!
