Oracle should grant those of us who tried to submit the assignment before the 27th additional time, as this isn't our fault at all - how was I supposed to know that I need to upload the assignment via Pearson (I bought my assignment via Prometric), and that I need to request a voucher, which may take 5 business days to respond? Combined with the fact that I cannot take Part 3 without submitting it via Pearson, and that I need to schedule Part 3 at least 24 hours prior, t is very difficult for me to make the deadline.
This email is to inform you that there has been a delay in grading assignments and essays. At this time, you may have been awaiting your results for more than four weeks. Please know that we are working diligently with the grading team to clear the backlog as quickly as possible. A bigger concern for you is probably the upcoming training requirement for your Java Master certification. We can assure you that should you receive a failing grade on your assignment, we will allow you time to resubmit and become certified should you pass, without completing the training requirement even if you receive your grade after the September 30 deadline. The exceptions outlined below will be allowed.
Candidate submits Assignment and Essay (and has completed any other required exams) by August 27, 2011 and receives a passing grade after September 30, 2011
This candidate will receive the certification without completing the training requirement
Candidate submits Assignment and Essay (and has completed any other required exams) by August 27, 2011 and receives a failing grade after September 30, 2011
This candidate will be given the opportunity to resubmit the assignment and essay within a prescribed time period. Should the candidate pass on the second attempt, he will receive the certification without completing the training requirement. Should he fail on the 2nd attempt, training will be required for certification based on subsequent attempts.

Accessor: Assessment : Marks lost in the three major UML diagrams (class, component and deployment) due to an incomplete representation of the business problem coupled with an inadequate level of detail. The candidate is also encouraged to revisit the mitigations proposed for the top three risks and to add more detail on exactly how each mitigation will be implemented and how it will adequately resolve the risk identified.
Class Diagram: No JSP's, used composite pattern in domain model (16 classes + domain model), did not show any interfaces,
Component: presentation, managed beans, session beans, DAO's + web services.
Deployment: This was the reason i failed. Got really bad scores. firewall, load balancer (also between IMS/3D modelling tool), two nodes. Also used cloud computing.. this might been big mistake.
Please delete this post if too detailed information..
ps. yes, I did read Cades book.

Also, when we use color for a class or note its huge and visible. When you use color for a line it may not be clearly visible. That is again a negative point for us. In Sheil's chapter 9, he says that we have to provide 'legend' if we are using colors. If you are using random colors, again you have a problem.
As for UML tools providing options for colors:
I have myself used colors in my designs where I show classes in 'yellow' and notes in 'pink' - but not for the relationship lines - and I am not using any colors for the exam...
Ranganathan Kaliyur Mannar wrote:still not clear...I understand that you obviously cannot paste the diagram. suppose class A has (composition) class B, class C, then you how the relationship with say green color. Another unrelated class D has class E (composition). Are you showing this in different color? I don't think its a good idea. btw, how many classes do you have?
Ranganathan Kaliyur Mannar wrote:your question is not clear to me...why do you want to distinguigsh relationships with colors?
I mean, generalization/realization/association(composition/aggregation)/usage dependancy all have different arrowheads and line styles. That itself is sufficient, right?
