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. regds Jitu
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
