Please i have a question? Can a deployment Diagram show an interface. In most Books i have read Interface is often used in a Component Diagram

wy you want to show an interface in deploy diagram ?
deploy diagram is very abstract and show components in very high abstraction, and where they are "depolyed" physically

why do You need a deployment diagram? The assignment is asking for a component diagram only.

Cheers

In fact, anything you think that will help to understand your solutin is valid, although will not get you any extra marks.

IMO you should show interfaces in the component diagram. If you create a deployment diagram with components inside, then you can show the necessary interfaces, although will clutter the diagram.

By the way. What should be modeled as an interface: things like Java IDL or JNI for example or also offboard servers and sreen- html scraper?

thanks for your help

UML Deployment Diagrams do not include API level interfaces. Lines between the components typically represent how the communication is occuring (ie. RMI, JDBC etc).

Example: UML 2 Deployment Diagrams.
