Diagramming Software for Design UML Communication Diagrams

Diagramming Software for Design UML Communication Diagrams

UML Communication Diagram depicts the interactions between objects or parts in terms of sequenced messages and describes both the static structure and dynamic behavior of a system. Read more
"Media (singular medium) are the storage and transmission channels or tools used to store and deliver information or data. It is often referred to as synonymous with mass media or news media, but may refer to any means of information communication. ...
Analog telecommunications include some radio systems, historical telephony systems, and historical TV broadcasts.
Digital telecommunications allow for computer-mediated communication, telegraphy, and computer networks.
Modern communication media now allow for intense long-distance exchanges between larger numbers of people (many-to-many communication via e-mail, Internet forums, and teleportation). On the other hand, many traditional broadcast media and mass media favor one-to-many communication (television, cinema, radio, newspaper, magazines, and also facebook)." [Media (communication).

"A computer network or data network is a telecommunications network that allows computers to exchange data. In computer networks, networked computing devices (network nodes) pass data to each other along data connections. The connections (network links) between nodes are established using either cable media or wireless media. The best-known computer network is the Internet.
Network devices that originate, route and terminate the data are called network nodes. Nodes can include hosts such as servers and personal computers, as well as networking hardware. Two devices are said to be networked when a device is able to exchange information with another device." [Computer network. Wikipedia]

The vector stencils library "Bank UML communication diagram" contains 4 shapes for drawing UML communication (collaboration) diagrams.
Use it for object-oriented modeling of your bank information system.
"A communication diagram in the Unified Modeling Language (UML) 2.0, is a simplified version of the UML 1.x collaboration diagram.
A Communication diagram models the interactions between objects or parts in terms of sequenced messages. Communication diagrams represent a combination of information taken from Class, Sequence, and Use Case Diagrams describing both the static structure and dynamic behavior of a system.
However, communication diagrams use the free-form arrangement of objects and links as used in Object diagrams. In order to maintain the ordering of messages in such a free-form diagram, messages are labeled with a chronological number and placed near the link the message is sent over. Reading a communication diagram involves starting at message 1.0, and following the messages from object to object." [Communication diagram. Wikipedia]

"Communication diagram (called collaboration diagram in UML 1.x) is a kind of UML interaction diagram which shows interactions between objects and/or parts (represented as lifelines) using sequenced messages in a free-form arrangement.
Communication diagram corresponds (i.e. could be converted to/from or replaced by) to a simple sequence diagram without structuring mechanisms such as interaction uses and combined fragments. It is also assumed that message overtaking (i.e., the order of the receptions are different from the order of sending of a given set of messages) will not take place or is irrelevant."

Communication diagrams show a lot of the same information as sequence diagrams, but because of how the information is presented, some of it is easier to find in one diagram than the other.
Communication diagrams show which elements each one interacts with better, but sequence diagrams show the order in which the interactions take place more clearly." [Communication diagram. Wikipedia]

Digital Communications Network. Computer and Network Examples

The digital communication is a physical transfer of the data over a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communication channel. Channels can be copper wires, optical fibres, wireless communication channels, etc. The data are realized as electromagnetic signals (radiowave, microwave, electrical voltage, etc.). This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Digital Communication Network diagram. Read more
"The client–server model of computing is a distributed application structure that partitions tasks or workloads between the providers of a resource or service, called servers, and service requesters, called clients. Often clients and servers communicate over a computer network on separate hardware, but both client and server may reside in the same system. A server host runs one or more server programs which share their resources with clients. A client does not share any of its resources, but requests a server's content or service function. Clients therefore initiate communication sessions with servers which await incoming requests.
Examples of computer applications that use the client–server model are Email, network printing, and the World Wide Web." [Client–server model. Wikipedia]
