Hi All,
Suppose I have usecase A , B , C. A and B all include C.
When I draw the sequence diagram for use case A and B , how to show at somewhere it will use the usecase C. The the reader can refer to the sequence diagram for usecase c to get detail information?
Thanks in advance .

I'd make a diagram for use case C that shows a stimulus coming from outside into some object to start the use case. Don't specify where it comes from, because we don't really care ... I often have an object called "Any Client" for that kind of thing. Then in use case A and B show the same object and send the stimulus message to it. Add a comment to refer the reader to the "use case C" diagram to see what happens in response to the stimulus.
Does that sound like it will work for you?
