I am not quite sure how to depict a use case in sequence diagram.
Many times I have asked this question and I have been forward to agilemodeling.com .
That solution doesnt work becuase in Rose I am not able to show a use case
icon in sequence. I tried that.
Can any SCEA passouts give thier suggestion.
I am using Rose.
Thanks

Dhiren,
I used the regular classifier (boxes) to represent the different use cases. I added the sterotype as <<Use Case>>. I also used the messages to indicate that the use case is included as part of the flow of this module. For example, to include the 'Log In' use case, I used the following message:

[If customer not logged in] <<include>>
------------------------------------------>

And the arrow points to the use case stereotyped classifier box.

hope this helps..
