The detail level of the assignment diagrams

Hello,

What you think about the detail level of the assignment diagrams?

I read from the Humphrey Sheil's powerpoint that is good that the scroll bars are not needed when the examiner checks the diagrams.

What you think is it ok to have the class and sequence diagrams where the examiner have to use the scroll bars? I think it's good to have a detailed design, but of course not a messy design.

Is it so that in the Humphrey Sheil's newest book in the chapter 9 the diagrams doesn't contain everything what should be present. For example the class diagram doesn't contain the JSPs for the use case "Post Product For Sale". For example CreateNotice.jsp is missing.

BR,

Mika

I was thinking about this post when re-reading the chapter. I think there is some discrepancy in what should be in the diagram in real life vs in the exam.

For example, in real life a component diagram is often higher level than the class diagram and doesn't list every single class. And a class diagram doesn't list JSPs (or property files or many other things.) That said, I'm not going to exclude things from my SCEA assignment because we can't rely on corporate conventions to fill things in.
