In UML 2.0 for Sequence Diagram, when do you use "Lifeline", "Boundary", "Control" and "Entity"?

I've done diagramming a lot in design docs but I only mostly use the Lifeline image. And usually, the interface and the name of the implementing class is represented there. I may have used the Entity diagram to represent a data store.

So, I wanted now to make it right, and confirm that I'm using the right representations all my life... UML 2.0, when do you use these other lifeline types...?

Lifelines (mostly rectangles):

Boundary, Control, Entity:

Hi Denise,

About Boundary, Control and Entity lifelines there are some examples given in Adam Bien's "Real World Java EE Design Patterns, Rethinking Best Practices"

http://download.java.net/general/podcasts/real_world_java_ee_patterns.pdf

There its clearly mentioned about these differences through some examples of Domain Driven and Event Driven Architecture.

Thanks,
Kumar.
