I need an ans for this question i found in 486.
When Scheduling project activities such as functional increments and test case development, which one of the following OOAD artifacts is the MOST useful?
a) Use cases
b) Interaction diagrams
c) Activity diagrams
d) Package diagrams
e) Class Diagrams
With functional increments and test case development is it better to go by Interaction diagrams/Activity diagrams?
how different is activity diagram from an interaction diagram..
i have heard that Sequence and Interaction diagrams constitute Collobartion diagrams.Pls throw some light on this.

I'd say A, use cases. It is a common practice to group use cases into increments and have them drive test development.
When you say you found this in 486 I assume you mean a mock exam, right?
