Hi Ranchers,

I am working on Factory homes assignment.
got question around 3D modeling tool. Does the 3D modeling tool returns image,video or PDF. or does it return OutputStream which can be converted to either image,video or PDF file. I need to cover this up in my class diagram.

I will highly appreciate your response.

cheers
Goldy

Hi Goldy,

We can assume that 3D modeling tool accepts some parameter into request depending on which it can return output in image,video or PDF format through SOAP message response.

I think you can have it return whatever you want as long as you say that in your assumptions, in my assignment it just returns an object

I have assumed that the 3d tool is an RIA that runs in the browser's plugin. Am I expected to provide more details around this like what kind of software it is etc ? I have seen some similar applications but I don't know for sure that the one in the assignment can ever be built as an RIA or not. Should I worry about this and change my assumption ?

Please help.

I didn't go into any detail at all about the 3D modelling tool, I just had my code calling a facade to the tool and getting back an object. Just as with the WebServices you do not know the API so assume whatever makes the assignment easiest, it doesn't make sense to create an elaborate scenario that is going to complicate your design if you don't have to.

Thanks Will,

We don't have to worry about the risks this assumption will introduce in the system and document the mitigation for it right ?

I didn't have this as a risk as I think there are much bigger one you need to worry about, I just mentioned in the assumptions that I assumed that the tool chosen was robust and did the job required reliably and quickly. I think having a facade to interface with it insulates the SuD from swapping out the tool in the future should it be required.

I'm going to close this as we are getting to talking about design of a real assignment.
