Can anyone please tell how to show a Component inside a Processer in deployment diagram using Rational rose. Couldn't find the component control on the toolbar in deployment diagram view.

Is there any other free UML tool that allows us to add a component inside a processor.

I haven't used Rational Rose Enterprise Edition for about six months now but was also frustrated to find that you couldn't put components into a node as part of a Deployment diagram.

Microsoft Visio, using a downloaded template, allows you to do whatever you like on the Deployment diagram while Together Designer CE (using UML 1.4) still allows components to be part of a node.

Hope this helps? UML 2.0 will only allow you to put artefacts into a node.

Does it support Composition relationship(The solid diamond) is class diagram? Thanks.

Since Composition is a stronger form of aggregation, you have to first establish aggregation relationship between two classes. Use Tools > Create > Aggregation for aggregation control. Once you have established aggreation relationship between two classes, right click on the aggregation link and then change the containment to either by value or by reference from unspecified to display composition relationship.
