According with the Post Request for Parts use case specification The system makes a bid request for A input part category, this does mean that we have only one Part Category related with a single Request, so in this case the system only can managed one request by part?



Hi,

I hope I don't confuse you. There is no wrong or right answer. However, use case mostly specify the function requirements. As an Architect, we need to cater to non-functional requirements. From a design perspective, the final design and solution should be flexible and can cater to changes with minimal impact. Hence, an Architect can have a design which is adaptable to changes in an easier manner compared to one which can meet EXACTLY the functional requirments and have huge impact when there are changes due to the changing business needs. Of course, there is no ONE solution which can meet all needs. However, as much as possible, an Architect should come out with a flexible design to be able to cater to changes. For example, as mentioned, is it possible for a supplier to be able to supply more than one part types in the real world?

Hope the above provide better clarifications.

Cheers!!

Have you considered the following alternative flows/scenarios and their impact on this multiplicity :
  • No supplier is interested in the Request and therefor no bids are made for that particular Request (before the auction timeout period expires)
  • A supplier asks for a re-send of the purchase order that was already sent for this Request

  • The assignment only lists the basic flow / main success scenario for each use case. A robust solution must consider the alternate flows/scenarios also.

    Regards.



    Hi Christian Suarez and Arvind Tiwari,

    Just some ideas:

    1. Isn't it great to have a solution which can mange one request with multiple parts?
    2. In real world, can a supplier or distributor provide more than one part types?
    3. Is there a need to constraint one request to only one part?

    Cheers!!

    When i visit amazon, i saw to following books listed for scea:

    Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for Java EE Study Guide (Exam 310-051) by Paul Allen
    Sun Certified Enterprise Architecture for J2EE Technology Study Guide (Sun Microsystems Press) by Mark Cade

    i am actually considering to buy one of this (or both)...

    Do you guys recommend me to buy these books? (or are they useful in preparing the exams?)

    Thanks



    Hi,

    Hi,


    After you have purchased part 2 voucher, you can download from the internet.
    Hi,

    When I took the course, it is like in year 2002. At that time, it is the old SCEA exam. The course mainly focus on the designing process using UML. The instructor will facilitate and guide you thorugh on your thought process as the class is very scenario based. For my class, we are split into groups to discuss and design a solution for the exercises. I would say that it helps you to think, review and improve on your thought process. I believe that the course is there for a purpose to enable an inspired Architect to improve on their though process and design. For some, it may not be useful as it depends on a person perception of how the class is conducted. However, I did not refer to the notes when I recently completed and passed the SCEA5. Hence, I am not sure if the course has helped me with the certification but I would say the course has helped me in my job after taking it since I did not immediately take the old SCEA certification at that time.

    Cheers
    Hi,

    What would you like to hear about the course? I have taken it many years back during the early stage of J2EE. I believe the content does not deviate much.
    Hi,

    If really no news, last resort is to give them a call using whichever number you can find from the SUN website ;)

    Cheers!!

    In my opinion the dependency relationship from jsp should point to the action servlet that it calls. but it doesn't show up the Controller's function.




    Hi,

    I am not sure of your query. Are you using some kind of tool which generate the relationship for you? What do you mean when you mention "..doesn't show up the Controller function"? One thing for you to note. Depending on your design, if all request is going to the FrontController and dispatch to JSP, do you think it makes sense to have an arrow pointing from JSP to the servlet in the Component Diagram?

    Additionally, since it is an application design, do you think it is necessary to show all components including the foundation classes (eg. ActionServlet) of the framework you use and the core foundation java classes in the Component Diagram?

    Cheers!!

    I have sent mail to who2contact@sun.com, there is no answer.



    Hi,

    When did you send? Maybe resend? Also, you can try to send to certification@educationservicesgroup.com. Not sure if this will work.

    Cheers!!
    Hi,

    For SCEA5, after completion of Part 3, the certmanager (ie. the sun_assignment site) will show "T" after two to four working days (cannot recall exact date). The Status will be updated to (P)assed or (F)ailed when the assignment is marked. I would suggest to email to SUN for enquiry of your situations.

    All the best!!

    Cheers!!

    for example, a pojo, i just give it a class name, not give the detail of attributes.
    It is fine for a archtectrue level doc?



    Hi,

    For the SCEA5, it is mentioned to show important and referenced attributes or methods shown in other diagram (eg. Sequence Diagram) in the Class Diagram. Hence, I agreed with Juee. However, from a practical perspective, I would also think it is important to provide the key functionalities (ie. methods) for a class shown in a Class Diagram. This is important to translate and justify why the class is there in the class diagram. The developers can implement in multiple ways. However, if key functionalities are not there, developers may not know the intent of the class being there in the class diagram.

    Above are my personal thoughts.

    Cheers!!
