Should a component without any dependencies be shown on the component diagram?

Hi Guys!!

I am using the ‘Fast Lane Reader’ pattern for doing the flight searches therefore I am not using the ‘Flight’ entity bean .
My question is that since the ‘Flight’ entity bean doesn’t have any dependency relationship with any other component in my ‘component diagram’, should I show it in the component diagram.

Thanks
Pankaj

I must be missing something here but my thought is what's the need of a component which I can't link to others? Who is going to use it in the system?

I haven't passed the exam yet so dont take my words for granted:-)

What I learned is "you are the judge"! Whatever be your decision if you can justify it you have no problem.

Thanks,
Sourav
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
