Hi,

could you advice me. I don't know what kind of uml diagram I can use for displaying this

system A calls system Bs' webservice

I would like to display these system(A,B) and highlight web service by B system. Something like this:


|A| -----------|ws|B|

There is a UML symbol for external entities. System B could be displayed as an external entity on a diagram for System A.
The symbol is a circle with a line below.

You would indicate the dependency upon System B and could attach a note to the diagram stating that communication occurs via web service.

Yes, there is a diagram for this. You would use Component diagram.

You can use Sequence Diagram or Communication Diagram or Interaction Overview Diagram to model interaction.
