We generally make one sequence for each use case.
Now if i am building one sequence diagram for one use case and that usecase includes other usecase OR it forwards to next use case, then how i show this in sequence diagram?

can anybody give me link to sample sequence diagram.. with similiar situation. or there is any such UML element for forwarding flow?

i am using UMl v1.x something.

thanks

Hi Ashish,

I do not know any techinique to call anothers sequence diagrams from one using UML 1.X, but, The UML 2.0 has a very good element to do this. It is the combined fragment called 'ref'.

With this combined fragment, you can reference another sequence diagram (this another sequence diagram must be named), inside the call stack of an lifetime.

Your use in sequence diagrams are very simple, it works as a 'method call' for another process. I have used in my diagrams, it have helped me a lot.

Good Luck!
