Hi all,

I have been looking in the online resources and books section of this forum for links to info on how to model EJB3 (things like annotations, timerservice, interceptors) and also JSF related stuff (managed beans, etc).
I found a couple of links like JSR-000026 UML/EJB Mapping Specification but this stuff is really old. Do you guys now of any good books/links on how to elegantly model this stuff in UML.

Or maybe I am going of the deep end here and we shouldn't show this kind of stuff on a sequence diagram for the assignment. Are there some of you who simply showed boundary, controllers and entity classes, a robustness diagram in fact, and passed ? If you stick to these kind of "generic" types the diagrams don't really have much to do with Java EE 5 technologies don't you think ?

Any thoughts on the above would be much appreciated.

Oh, and by the way, a merry christmas to you all

Regards

Hi,

If necessary, you can use UML StereoType <<>> to describe EJBs. No one can confirm how in depth a diagram should be. Hence, putting your chain of thoughts, your design decisions and your assumptions in the Design Notes are very important. Sometimes, I do not think having lots and lots of diagram would help to score high marks. In my personal opinion, it may give the markers the impression you do not understand the requirements. The key here is for the markers to understand your thoughts and how you derived at the design decisions and how well you leverage on UML to display your design or architecture. I cannot comment much on JSF as my design decision is different from your for the Presentation Tier.

Hope the above is helpful for you.

Cheers!!!

I'm working on my assignment now and I´ve just found this about uml based web engineering:

I hope it´ll be of any use (at least for me )
