I would like to use struts in my part 2 design. Here is a question I have: various classes are used in struts (actionservlet, requestprocesser, action, action form etc). However, I just extend the action class to create my action class and action form to create my form bean. is it ok if I just show these two classes in my sequence diagram(my action and form classes). Do I need to show the inner workings of the struts by showing the other classes as well. Any help would be highly appreciated.
I am also using struts for my presentation layer. I try to list the components in struts that I believe stands out the most as apache's implementation of the MVC architecture. Therefore, I list the JSPs, the front controller in Struts and its extentions. I don't however list the forms simple because they clutter the diagram to much. Not sure if my approach is correct.
Your class diagram should show the pieces of framework that were extened, the sequence diagram should focus on the messages between your components , the fact that the framework intercepted the calls and routed them can be as a note .
