1. How does one place a Actor in a Sequence Diagram in Rational Rose ? There seems to be no way to do this... The toolbar does not have any such icon/symbol.
2. How does one place the interface symbol (a small circle kind of thing) in a Component Diagram. It is not available in the tool bar of Component Diagram. But i find this symbol in the tool bar of Class Diagram instead ! I need this symbol to interface with subsystems.

On the left panel Browse to the view that has the actor defined and simply drag it to the sequence diagram on the right panel.

Thanks Ajith, this i figured out later...
But how about Point 2, of placing the interface symbol while interfacing with external subsystems ... how do i achieve this ?

I think that the component icon (the square with the 2 rectangles) is supposed to symbolize the interface (that's the rectangles) with the implementation. Refer to the three amigos book on the UML to verify.
However if you *really* wanted the lollipop on your model you could define it in a class diagram somewhere and drag it onto your Component diagram.

Once you have included your class in the component diagram, right click on class and choose Options->Steriotype display->Icon.

Hi..Ajith>
I am using Rational Rose.
I am not sure how to place a class in a Component diagram.
Someone suggested that i declare a interface, then i r-click on a Component in my component diagram, choose > Open Specification, go to Realizes tab, choose > the interface, rightclick and click Assign.
This gives me the Interface icon on my component diagram, the problem is that it is not with a dashed line, instead a solid line exists between the component and interface. I need a dashed line.
There does not seem to be a way to get the dashed line ?
Thanks
