>I have more follow-up questions if you don't mind:
I don�t mind
>1. Is this the standard distribution for the part II?
Yes, this is the standard distribution, but it doesn�t mean that these parts alone are enough. I additionally provided a list of assumptions and a paper of architectural and high-level design decisions (e.g. concerning security or scalability)
>2. What kinds of questions can one expect on the part III based on part >II?
Questions about what I call the "enterprise-criterias" or the "-ilities", e.g. Scalability, Availability, etc.
> 3. How many of each diagram types did you submit?
1 component, 1 class, and for every! use case 2 sequence diagrams - one technology independent and one J2EE specific.

>5. When you say use patterns: do you mean the patterns by GOF as on part >I of the exam? or do you mean the J2EE design patterns as in the texts by >Deepak Alur, John Krupi et. el? Any other patterns text that you referred >to? To what an extent did you show the patterns if you can provide any >guidelines on this I will appreciate it.
I did�t use GoF patterns, only the ones for J2EE. I declared them as known and used them in the component diagram and put an appropriate note on the diagram. And I used the newest J2EE patterns from the new book.

No prob, I was also very happy for guidance of the other guys (and girls) in this forum
