UML Version

I'm just starting on the assignment, but I'm confused about the form of sequence diagrams. You cannot show every scenario in one sequence diagram but I suppose you need at least the alternative flows. Is it required to model the alternative flows as well?

What version of UML is used today by most people as there are some nice provisions in UML 2.0 to show alternative flows and loops in 1 diagram?

Are people using UML 1.4, delivering multiple diagrams for one usecase to show the alternative flows?

Hi Kris,
You can use any version of UML you want to. For alternate flows, u can draw it in the same diagram(below the primary flow) and mention it with a text on the left side of the diagram. I followed that way . Try to put documentation in the diagrams also, so that it will easy for the examiner to understand.

SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.4, SCBCD 1.3, SCEA
I agree. Here's the link:
