sequence diagram granularity

Hello All,

I am finding that it is easier to put the PrepareItinerary and PayItinerary (with credit card) in the same diagram, and to put PayItinerary (with mileage award) in a separate diagram.

Is this an acceptable sequence diagram granularity for assignment submittal?

Thanks in advance.

The requirements state:

Create either a sequence or collaboration diagram for each use case provided.

Sorry for the question...

No, Saha,
your question was quite right in my oppinion!

In UML a Sequence Diagram is shown per scenario/flow of a usecase, not per usecase!

Hello Thomas,

Thank you for the reply. The way I read the requirements, it seems one sequence diagram per use case. I read other posts, and it seems that everyone has one sequence per usecase.

Previously, I wanted to put: prepareItinerary, priceItinerary, and payItinerary (with credit card), all happy paths in one sequence diagram.

Do you think this is correct?

Thanks in advance.
