Representation questions - Part 2

I'm currently creating my diagrams and I hope you guys can give me some pointers. Perhaps you can give examples of how you solved these problems

  • Application connects to an external system which 'uses JMS to communicate'. How do I model/represent this system in the sequence diagram, and in the class diagram?
  • How should I represent a WS call which is made from my application in the sequence and class diagram? I followed a tutorial which represents the WS client as a 'component' in the class diagram and sequence diagram. Do you know whether this is a good/bad idea?
  • Do you know any ways to handle exceptions in the sequence diagram ?
  • How detailed does the class diagram need to be? I mean all classes present in your application ( like utilities, frameworks, logging ) should be represented in the class diagram?

    hey guys...

    Sorry for insisting, but I'm really stuck on the points below, so if you happen to know/suggest how I could solve just some of them please reply...

    I suppose that we are not required to handle exceptions in Sequence diagrams as I read some where in the forum that Alternative flow is not required.

    And I think that you can represent what you mentioned about logging and utilities in a Utility package like Cade did in his example.

    hope I'm right !

    I agree. Here's the link:
