UML Diagram Types List

Types of UML Diagrams

Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a language of graphic description for object modeling in the field of software engineering. UML was created for definition, visualization, designing of software systems. UML is an open standard that uses graphic notations for creating visual models of object-oriented software systems.

Two types of diagrams are used in UML: Structure Diagrams and Behavior Diagrams. Behavior Diagrams represent the processes proceeding in a modeled environment. Structure Diagrams represent the elements that compose the system.

There are seven types of Structure Diagrams that must be present in any modeled system:

The Behavior Diagrams group includes:

The subgroup of Interaction Diagrams controls the flow of control and data, and includes:

Video 1. Types of UML Diagrams

Class Diagrams

UML Class Diagram is a type of Structure Diagrams that shows the classes of a system, attributes, operations, and the relationships between them.


Package Diagrams

UML Package Diagram is a type of Structure Diagrams that represents the packages of the model and dependencies between them.


Object Diagrams

UML Object Diagram is a type of Structure Diagrams that shows the objects of the system and attributes, and relations between the objects at a certain moment of time.


Use Case Diagrams

UML Use Case Diagram is a type of Behavior Diagrams that displays the dependencies between the actors and use cases. UML Use Case Diagram displays the system on the conceptual level.

Sequence Diagrams

UML Sequence Diagram is a type of Interaction Diagrams that describes the interactions between objects and classes that are involved in the scenario and the sequence of messages exchanged between them.


Collaboration Diagrams

UML Communication Diagram in UML 2.0 (Collaboration Diagram in UML 1.x) is a type of Interaction Diagrams that displays the interactions of objects using the sequenced messages.


Activity Diagrams

UML Activity Diagram is a type of Behavior Diagrams that graphically describes decomposition of the some activity on the components.


Component Diagrams

UML Component Diagram is a type of Structure Diagrams that shows how components are connected to larger components or software systems, and shows the dependencies among these components.


Deployment Diagrams

UML Deployment Diagram is a type of Structure Diagrams that shows the physical deployment of information generated by the software programs.


State Machine Diagrams

UML State Machine Diagram is a type of Behavior Diagrams that displays the finite state machine with states and state transitions.


Timing Diagrams

UML Timing Diagram in the UML 2.0 is a specific type of Interaction Diagrams that describes the timing constraints. UML Timing Diagrams describes the behaviors of the objects during a certain period of time.


Interaction Overview Diagrams

UML Interaction Overview Diagram is a type of Interaction Diagrams that describes an overview in which the nodes represent interaction diagrams.


Composite Structure Diagrams

UML Composite Structure Diagram is a type of Structure Diagrams that shows the internal structure of a class and the interactions of elements of the internal structure of the class.

UML Tool & UML Diagram Examples →

You can use many tools to create a representation of a system behavior or a scheme of objects relationships. Some of them are quite abstract and useless, and some, like UML tools help clarifying both the structure and the behavior of a system. There are various types of uml diagrams and tons of examples explaining the difference between them. UML 2.2 specification has many kinds of diagrams. They are divided into two groups( structure and behavior diagrams). This class diagram shows the hierarchical structure of UML 2.2 specification. Class diagram - the most suitable tool for this task because it is designed to describe basic structure of a system. This diagram can be use as a visual aid for learning UML.UML Tool & UML Diagram Examples *
