Hi

How do we represent this in UML Sequence Diagram. I am using Rational Rose to design the project.

System sends the use case 1 to use case 2

Thanks

This is a exam, so instead of asking direct answers why don't you put your thoughts. Once you give your thoughts others or I can provide missing points.

You can depict them in 2 seperate sequence diagrams. Anyways the assignment allows you to note down your assumptions as well in case there are any.

Ravindra,

I'm sorry, but the comments about asking things about the exam are right. Try to formulate some doubt's that are not related directly with the exam. Otherwise, this forum will became a "how to get scea step by step", and the value of certification will decrease. I'll help you in your question, but, take this comments as a good advice.

The best way to do that, is using the 'ref' element of UML 2.0. The ref element works as a method call, and you can define what kind of objects must be processed at the method call.

The problem is, you're using the Rational Rose. Rational Rose supports only UML 1.4, so you'll can't get this feature like this. My suggestion is: Try to use another Rational UML tool that supports UML 2.0. There are a lot, as Rational Software Modeler and Rational Software Architect. Or, you can get another UML compliance tool that supports 'ref' sentinels, like Together or Enterprise Architect.

Best Regards!

Thanks Ricardo/Suekar for your answers. What I am thinking is I would want to show the UI in preceding Sequence Diagram forwarding to CONTROLLER in following Sequence Diagram. Is this the correct approach?

BTW since two of the members feel that I am asking a direct question so I have modified my original question.

I think its ok if you just show view object instead of showing sequence for UI.
