hi;
looking at cade's CAD i noticed that some classes that are shown in
the ocmponent diagram and sequence diagram are not shown in the CAD.
for example: value object & JSPs are not included in the CAD.
is there any reason for this? i thought the CAD should include all
classes in the system. if EJBs are shown in the CAD than why not the
JSPs?
is there any logic i should follow when deciding if an object is
worthy of being included in the CAD?
thanks in advance.

Guy,
Class diagrams, sequence diagrams, component diagrams, etc., are all intended to represent different views of the system. Levels of abstractions, static structure, dynamic interaction, packaging, and deployment are some of the differences that are addressed with different diagrams. Understanding what to depict in a particular diagram is usually a question that asks: What do you want to communicate and from what perspective?
Regards,
Bill
