Diagramming Software for designing UML Sequence Diagrams

Diagramming Software for designing UML Sequence Diagrams

Sequence Diagrams shows how objects communicate with each other in terms of a sequence of messages. Also indicates the lifespans of objects relative to those messages. Read more

UML Sequence Diagram Example. SVG Vectored UML Diagrams Tools

This sample was created in ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software using the UML Sequence Diagram library of the Rapid UML Solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. This sample shows the interactions of the customer with the system and is used at the registration on the sites. Read more
This example of automated teller machine (ATM) UML sequence diagram was created on the base of figure 5 "Sequence diagram" on the webpage "Message Sequence Charts and their Ilk" from the website of the University of California Irvine (UCI) Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences.
"A UML sequence diagram or SD is similar to an MSC but written with a different notation. Presumably the same semantic issues arise, but possibly not since UML semantics are not well-defined. An example is shown in Figure 5.
The timelines are dotted rather than solid, and the name of the component is inside a box at the head of each timeline. The narrow rectangles apparently show when a component is active (unsure precisely what "active" means). An X on a timeline indicates that the component ceases to exist in some sense (unsure precisely how this is meant also). In the example, the Bank timeline has an X simply as an example (presumably the Bank does continue to exist)."

UML Diagrams with ConceptDraw PRO

Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a single modeling language that is used in software engineering to represent effectively the structure of complex computer systems and software. Such visual models in form of UML diagrams allow simplify the process of software development, let to meet the deadlines, improve the final software products, and also facilitate communication process between the customer, system analysts and programmers. The UML language defines standards for operations, methods of programming languages, and their terminology. The main types of UML diagrams are: Activity diagram, Use Case diagram, Deployment diagram, Statechart diagram, Class diagram, Component diagram, Sequence diagram, Collaboration diagram. ConceptDraw PRO extended with Rapid UML solution is a professional software that provides perfect possibility of easy designing detailed UML diagrams. It offers large number of task-oriented templates and predesigned vector stencils that correspond to standard UML diagram notation. Use them to instantly design the UML diagrams. Read more
The vector stencils library "UML sequence diagrams" contains 50 symbols for the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"Sequence diagram ... building blocks.
If the lifeline is that of an object, it demonstrates a role. Note that leaving the instance name blank can represent anonymous and unnamed instances.
Messages, written with horizontal arrows with the message name written above them, display interaction. Solid arrow heads represent synchronous calls, open arrow heads represent asynchronous messages, and dashed lines represent reply messages. If a caller sends a synchronous message, it must wait until the message is done, such as invoking a subroutine. If a caller sends an asynchronous message, it can continue processing and doesn’t have to wait for a response. Asynchronous calls are present in multithreaded applications and in message-oriented middleware. Activation boxes, or method-call boxes, are opaque rectangles drawn on top of lifelines to represent that processes are being performed in response to the message (ExecutionSpecifications in UML).
Objects calling methods on themselves use messages and add new activation boxes on top of any others to indicate a further level of processing.
When an object is destroyed (removed from memory), an X is drawn on top of the lifeline, and the dashed line ceases to be drawn below it (this is not the case in the first example though). It should be the result of a message, either from the object itself, or another.
A message sent from outside the diagram can be represented by a message originating from a filled-in circle (found message in UML) or from a border of the sequence diagram (gate in UML)." [Sequence diagram. Wikipedia]
