I have got about half way into the modeling of my sequence diagrams and although they need a bit more work i am generally happy with the modeling. The problem is that i am not sure how the web tier should be modeled. At this point i have a call from an object called client that represents the web tier.
In my position i use struts and i would find it hard to model a struts web tier as most of the interaction i feel is done inside the framework. I understand in the flight app how the front controller would work and delegate work to a action type class but it is the modeling of the view part that i find hard to visualise. it seems to just be declarative in most web tier frameworks these days. how can i put that in a sequence diagram? I have always been a server side developer so i am a bit confused. I am sure that we cannot use struts being third party but everybody uses frameworks, don't they.
Are there any resources that anybody knows of that would help me in this area?
Do you think that buying the architect's certification book would help clear my confusion? i would have read it by now if i could find it in a bookshop but any i try don't have it in stock. i am a bit standoffish about purchasing the whole thing as i have passed part 1 and apart from client am doing well in part 2.
Thanks in advance for any help.
