Hello Ranchers,
I am so excited to let you all know that I am SCEA certified (I am getting engaged today and that doubles the enjoyment).
I thank all of you for all kind of support. Special thanks to J J and Cameron Wallace McKenzie for some of their nice inputs.

Only reference material I used was UML distilled.
My experience with part 2 and 3.
-------------------------------------
I have 8 years of experience in application development in and around J2EE. Never worked on EJB3 (but I knew EJB2) and JSF. I never did a UML diagram before and never bothered to understand one too as my lead used to explain me what I need to do.

Major problems I faced were
---------------------------------
1. Forgetting that is an assignment not a real world solution . One of the Java ranch post brought me back to track so you can make any assumption you want.
2. Unnecessarily time wasted on thinking about 'how to make JMS work synchronous' or 'how to manage authentication' etc
I happily put a note asking the programmer to take care of my first 'problem' and made an assumption that that authentication is out of scope.
3. I was never confident on my solution as class diagram kept changing every day as I revise. Later I realized that that is the way it works. I had to modify the class diagram through out the process. I realized that design can be beautified forever.
4. I felt awkward in asking other for help. I was thinking 'what would they think about me. I should have known all these things already' but the truth is, all those people I approached were so happy in helping me (in fact some of them really appreciated it).


Thanks you all again. Have a good time.
Sandeep

Congratulations Sandeep!. Great advice about "clearing the exam", thanks.
One reason people ponder over details is that just clearing the exam is not the only goal.
Given the skeletal requirements of the assignment, it would make me feel real powerful if I can provide a complete foundation of the solution with all the major UML diagrams, cluster configuration, processor speeds etc..
But yeah, the focus shouldn't be lost while we do that.
What was your assignment, btw ?
