Hi,

Two questions:

- Do we need to add a bullet point list of the steps (use case) described in the sequence diagram?

- Should reply messages be on the diagram only when the method called returns a value, or always when the call is synchronous?



Peace

Hi

Here are my comments,

FYI. I'm also working on Part-II.

- Do we need to add a bullet point list of the steps (use case) described in the sequence diagram?

I'm planning to mention a write up with bullet points about the diagrams right under the digram. I say YES to it.

- Should reply messages be on the diagram only when the method called returns a value, or always when the call is synchronous?

Returing boolean/int even for the cases like Create, Update, and Remove would make sense, even though the client is not expecting at the moment. This is useful to understand whether the action is really happened or not or how many no. of rows effected etc..

Hope this helps.

Best Regards,
Sri.
