Hi ,
I have a scenario where my use case says " System has relationship with X and Y for sending the shipments". "X has proprietary java api for sending shipping requests and Y uses a web service to accept shipping requests".


What i understand from this is ,system can send shipping requests to both X and Y. Y can be web service provider and we can be web service client to send the shipping requests. But i am not sure how to interpret X. How to interpret this "x" ? Any thoughts.

Thanks
Karthi

X simply provides you with a set of Java code. You call the methods in their code, and that calls on their stuff.

Basically, imagine that X uses JDBC, but they have a dozen classes that they provide to you that wraps up JDBC code. So, you call their custom Java code in your code and it connects to their system for you.

Ok, i understand this but i am getting too much into the words they used in the assignment like system always calls X with java api and X (X has proprietary java api for sending shipping requests ) in turn sends requests to Y ("Y uses a web service to accept shipping requests"). Or should i assume that X and Y are seperate and X uses java api and Y can accept web service requests.

Thanks

Part of the exam is to try and give you the same sort of fuddle that a business analyst would give an architect. So, part of your job is trying to figure out what the hecks the business analyst means.

Basically, what you need to do is simplify. Just cut through the gibberish with Occam's Razor. The simplest explanation of what they're talking about is going to be the correct one.

I think you are talking about Big smokes cigar shop assignment. The exact text is :
Big Smokes has existing relationships with frieght movers and international shipping for shipping cigars to mail-order customers. they want to continue using these relationships for shipping cigars on Internet orders. Freight movers has a proprietary Java API for sending shipping requests. International Shippers a web service to accept shipping request.

Yeah, we try to avoid quoting the text of the assignment. Just to maintain the integrity of the certification, it's best to try and speak in more abstract terms.
