Thanks for your response.

Bobby, Could you please what tool you are using to draw uml? I tried using Magic draw. But i am finding it difficult to work with as my system (laptop) becomes very slow with that.

Hi,

I am using "alt" or "opt" frames as necessary to show alternate flows.

About StarUML, I think it is a great tool. I used Jude in the past, but I am using StarUML in my classes (I am also a teacher).
