Hi All,
The required format for submitting the UML diagrams for part-2 assignment is HTML (as mentioned in the downloaded problem statement document).
I have created the UML diagrams using starUML tool version 2.6.
This tool gives me options to export the diagram in SVG format among others. Is SVG format the accepted format for part-2 assignment submission? Or should I convert the SVG file to HTML file?

How do I submit the UML diagrams in HTML format? Should I create an HTML file and include the SVG image in it?
Can you please guide me on how to submit the diagrams as HTML? Any guidance in this regard from members who have successfully completed part-2 would be very helpful.

There are several ways to present the images/diagrams:
1) embed them in html (image will bound to the web browser width)
2) enable link to image directly (preferred, so that you can zoom in/out)

As for which extension, I guess SVG works but I would export to some more common formats like PNG, JPEG.

Hi, I have a doubt:

As I have read, the part two of certification doesn't need nothing about codification, just diagrams and documentation. But, which is not clear for me is if I need to build html files to link to images of diagrams, or I just compact all in jar file and send to them. If I need to create a structural pages to expose the diagrams and documentation, how do I create it?

I read Oracle Press' book
Oracle Certified Master, Java EE Enterprise Architect
and it shows html files for the proposal, I mean, html files as part of business solution, eg. pages for maintain 'order screen'  (submit, browse, etc)

So, now I am confused how to build the solution since it shouldn't have no codification...

I just passed in Part 01 and I am trying to prepare for the next phases before  to buy the voucher for part 02 and 03. If you can help me, I will be thankful.

Hi Renato,
1. Create the UML diagrams as images.
2. Optional step: Embed these images in individual html files - one image per html file.
3. There would be other html files as well, such as index, risks, assumptions, etc.
4. From the index html file, link all these individual html files or images such that the evaluating person would be able to open these by clicking on links in index page.
5. Using any jar creation tool, create a jar file containing all these files. There is a specified way to name this jar file. Jar file is similar to a zip file.
6. I think the Oracle JDK provides a command line utility to create a jar file. There are many other alternatives as well.

Yes, you need HTML in order to have a cohesive submission. Remember that you are submitting both images and text (assumptions/rational.) I used basic HTML including lists and so forth in mine.

The "not coding" comment is about not writing the application you are designing.

Yup. jar -cf does that.
