In the documentation it is requested that once all other action has taken place, another use case is executed.

I have seen some notes on this forum stating that you can just place a comment/note at the end of your sequence diagram to represent that another use case is executed.

Is this the best way to do it?

You can use a Actor to show the other use case and send a message to that actor indicating the execution of that use case

Vishwa,

Excellent Idea! I can see how that would work well but, I am concered about representing anything other than an actual user or system as an actor...sorta referencing my experience and also "UML Distilled" for the basis of this concern.

I think UML can be changed to do what you need with it -but- I would like to hear a few more ideas before taking one route or another.

Currently, I have a couple notes on the page at the bottom of the sequence diagram but that seems wrong too...

Any other ideas out there?

When you say "an actual user or system as an actor...", think of the use case as a (Sub) System...

Makes sense?

Vishwa,

This all makes sense to me.

Have you passed Part II with this strategy?
