Hi All,

Where should the design pattern reflect in my UML diagram: class, sequence, component or all three?

To explain my question in detail:

While expending the BDM, should the Object decomposition go to a level where I would be showing the classes like DAO, Composite Entity, Fast Lane Reader etc?
And in turn should I be showing them as a part of sequence diagram?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Bobby,

Based on Code's class diagram, I consider this diagram as a view of only the business objects, supported by some classes which provide workflow methods. The classes which you mentioned - DAO, Composite Entity and Fast Lane Reader are part of the J2EE framework and therefore belong to the Component diagram; again, based on Case.

You firghten me terribly. I would like to go home now. Here, take this tiny ad:
