Hi guys,

Maybe this is a basic question, but it's really disturbing me since I'm new to UML.

My question is how to describe include use case by sequence diagram. For example use case A include use case B, should i show the complete sequence (A + B) only in one sequence diagram or show the 2 separate sequence in 2 independent diagram? Personally, I think the first method is better choice, because it shows a complete flow for user to read, but not very sure. Can anyone give some opinions on this issue? Any replies would be appreciated.

Hi,

I split the sequence diagram and showed in separate diagrams. But i made sure to which functionality of the use case that diagram belongs to is mentioned in the diagram in brackets. I did this way after reading a post in this forum saying the sequence diagram can be split.

Cheers,
