Can't believe it really but I just logged in to the Certmanager and saw: Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE 5 P 0 (apperantly there is a bug where it doesn't show the score). Anyway, I am happy, despite feeling that Big Smokes was a horrible assignment. Not even my most non-technical clients submit as bad specifications as Sun did

Couldn't agree more. The requirements are that bad you're never quite sure whether you're being tested or whether the assignment was just sloppily put together. Either way, I'm not sure what Sun are trying to achieve, because the more you research the e-commerce problem domain, the less sense they make!

Nice work on passing.

I actually did work for clients in retail and I swear to god, their business analysts were very much able to explain everything from supply chain management, warehousing, distributors, logistics, etc.

Than again, Sun is a high tech company, so we can't expect them know too much about selling cigars

Well, anyways... my suggested architecture was probably far more complex than necessary, but the complexity comes from the flexibility which I had to introduce due to the ambiguities in the specification.

A friend of mine works as a SAP implementation consultant. When I showed him the Big Smokes requirements he thought they were a joke.

Also, if you assume that most people follow some kind of RUP based development process, the architecturally significant use cases should have far more detail. How they're meant to represent the output of "an intensive series of discovery workshops with the in-house business analysts and subject matter experts" is beyond me.
