UML question RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a web site that I am documenting.

    It does a search process and stores the criteria choices in the session. The it goes into another page for view order details.


    I displayed the activation to start of the criteria and at the end of the criteria when they come back. But, I was looking at another architects drawings for another company and he makes the activation small. And, yes since a page is delivered right after a request. I can see him make short activations.

    But, since the criteria is held in session I think the activation should extend until this data is released.


    Main --> || Search  --> Details 

                   ||<--                <--



    Which way is correct?

  • Nick,

    If you are really concerned about notating the session then I would suggest that you need to make it an object in your sequence diagram.  I don't see it as part of your page, but as part of the application.

    Hope that helps,
