Hey Theodore,

I am really happy for you...not only for your passing the exam but also for the end of an almost endless wait (10 weeks) you have gone through.

Yours must be some sort of records in terms of the wait time.
Araxis fits like a good tool for your requirements.

No, I will not agree that there are no differences. Custom Value Objects (CVOs) are generally designed as input and output value objects. They are considered immutable. Whereas, Domain Transfer Objects DTOs are generally used within the application and are made mutable as they are provided with their own setter methods.

However, there is a thin line between the 2 types of objects and is left to the interpretation of the designers.
As Dean Jones said, England dodged the bullet and were really lucky to escape with a 2 runs victory. Good for Ashes, otherwise the defeat would have deflated England and we would have to go thru another Aussie hammering of England. Its going to be close this time.

Lets see how it goes at Old Trafford, that pitch is expected to be a turner. Maybe time for Stuart McGill ;-)

Because most of the Americans dont want to do lower level jobs like programming, they are busy in Architecting solutions and Designs but for we Indians coding is better.

Well.. not sure whether this was a tounge in cheek comment or not but seriously I won't agree with this at all. This forum is not meant exclusively for coders and neither the fact that Indians are only good at so called "lower level jobs" like coding. Things have changed a lot in the last few years.

Excruciating isn't even the beginning of it. *laughs* Considering, as I've mentioned elsewhere, I struggled through it while also working on getting married and a few other things...

As of last night, i7's score for my Part II reverted from 'Failed' to 'Pending', so I'm back into the holding pattern waiting for CertManager to update. Since I took Part 3 on June 28th, it's now been over a month (patience is not one of my virtues, no), but what's really more frustrated me is the fact that Sun and Thomson "forgot" to send it along to the assessor until I said something (see my first post on this thread). That's the main root of my frustration and impatience - I just really hate when folks don't do what they're supposed to, and thereby make me wait longer...

Yea.. I know.. shouldn't be giving advice :-).. glad to know that at least the status in i7 is changed for good.

Well, let me ask it this way, since I'm driving my poor wife crazy with my being mopey about i7 showing that I failed - how will it appear (ie, where?) on CertManager's assignment watcher (the /sun_assignment/ site) so I know to watch for it?

I understand that they're having a few screwups and whatnot, but seriously, this is driving me batty while I'm trying to prepare for another test and Shareon's emails keep thanking me for my patience without giving me any real satisfaction...


You will see the results on the Assignment Watcher (/sun_assignment/). When your results are uploaded, it will be seen when you click on the Test History Button. Currently, u'll be seeing only Part 1 results, Part 2 and Part 3 information will be appended to the same page.

I also suggest not to get overtly anxious on this.. though I must admit that the wait is excruciatingly long. Take your mind off it and the result will come. I have a feeling that it will come very soon for you now that they have started clearing the deck. I gave Part 3 on 30th July, so just a couple of days difference with you.

Congrats!! That is a good score.

How many classes do u have in your class diagram? Do you show any attributes and methods of the class? How many sequence diagrams? Also, did you change the multiplicity of the BDM? Thanks.

- I had around 20 classes im my class diagram
- Yes, I did show some relevant attributes but I did not change the multiplicity
- Showed 8 Seq diagrams
After almost 4 weeks of anxious wait...I got the results just a few minutes back:

There is another thing.. what I don't understand is the desperation of going to US? may be u can earn a bit more but ur life will always be uncertain.

So my advice, if u really want it so bad.. go through a proper channel. At this stage of your career, the only proper channel will be through higher studies or as a tourist :-)

Regarding IT Jobs, have some patience, Indian companies are good for your initial grounding and experience and going from their side will give you a lot more secure feeling than being a loner searching for jobs in a place where none exist. Even the money factor is not such a big differentiator these days as it used to be.. say 5 years ago.

Ideally, you should look only at the CertManager. There have been cases when i7 is not updated properly, specially during the initial stages but is synched up when the CertManager displays the result.

So my take would be that you should still keep your fingers crossed and do not reflect much on i7(btw. where in i7 are you seeing this?)

Hopefully the confusion will be removed in a day or two.
It appears it had nothing to do with any network or spyware. Seems like a temporary outage which has been restored now.
Point is that Prometric/Sun themselves suggest to view the results on the certmanager. Results on Integral7 link are reflected only after a certain time lag.
Check if the link works for u..
