Hi
I am Raj. I have just joined the group. I am planning to give the exam by mid July. Though UML is something which has fascinated me for quiet some time. I would love to post some of the fascinating questions on UML which I guess would interest everyone in this group.
If we have to a develop a design model for a web application. While preparing use case for the same, can Internet Browser be termed as an actor. Any guesses?
yup

I'd just use an actor called "User" or "Client" to describe the combination of man & browser.

Well, I guess *technically* it could.
But will the browser ever act without being stimulated by a (human) user?

According to me NO.
Internet Browser is merely an utility to display WEB (HTML) pages. It does not perform any role in context of any specific application OR problem domain.
yup
