Hi,

The Oracle Java EE Architecture Course is using UMLet for their lessons.

But I have not seen anyone using UMLet here
Is it too simple?

I am using it now, I find it simple and easy to use.
I have tried Visual Paradigm too, it is much more complicated and the learning curve can be very high, though I know it can provide much more functionalities.

What is your comment?


Thanks

I looked at UMLet briefly, and it seems to lack UML 2.0 support. There seems to be a consensus that your diagrams can be UML 1.x, but I wanted to focus on UML 2.0. I ended up using Visual Paradigm Community Edition, since I figured there was some value in learning a more robust tool. In the end, I do not regret using Visual Paradigm. You can read some more of my rational in my blog post about OCMJEA part 2 and 3. Hope this helps.

Hi Pin Guan Wang,

I see that you are using Oracle Java EE Architecture Course, i just wanted to check with you about how useful this course for Part 1, Part 2 & 3.

I am planning to take Part 1 exam on this 27th September, based on your experience if you think the course is very useful, i may go for it and postpone my exam to a later date.


I am currently reading Paul Allen & Joesph Bambra's new book & Whizlabs for practice questions.

after i take the Part 1 exam, i am planning to spend some time preparing for Part 2 & 3, i am not very sure where to start, part 2 & part 3 seems to be subjective and i am not feeling confident that the solution i provide would cover 100% percent of the requirements given in the assignment & wanted to if there is a way to cross verify my work.




I appreciate if you or anyone can help me point in right direction and decide on these concerns

Thanks in Advance & appreciate any replies.

Hi Sai Babu,

I have taken the "Architect Enterprise Applications with Java EE" course through "training on demand".
To be honest, the course itself is not very useful to the Part 1 exam, there are a number of topics that will not be tested in part 1, the multiple choice questions at the end of each chapter are very different from the questions in the part 1 exam too.

If you want to take this course before your part 1 exam, I recommend you just need to attend the course, and there is almost no need to refer to the course materials for your part 1 exam.

I have passed part 1 in my 2nd attempt and I am working on part 2 now.
Some of the UML activity questions in the course are useful to part 2 somehow nevertheless.

As I said, I passed my part 1 in my 2nd attempt, I seriously think that you must be very very well prepared before you go for this part 1 exam, the questions are tricky, long-winded, ambiguous and difficult.


Good luck!

Thanks for suggestion.

It seems Paul Allen and Joesph Bambara's books is tailored for the exam and i am going to give it a try this month.


Thanks
