Hi all.
To sequence diagram, a diagram may need to refer to another one.
And "ref" frame can be used to represent this scenario in version UML 2.x.
But StarUML doesn't allow syncronous call to point to "ref" fram.
Can someone teach me how to use StarUML to do this?

Hi Steve. I had the same problem.

There is another approach, you can place the ref frame over the lifeline of the source object.

I had to do this in my assignment, but I haven�t received my results yet.

Hi Cleuton Sampaio,

Is it valid to do so in UML 2.x? I cannot see any examples in the latest UML specification. It confuses other that all the business flows in the
"ref" frame are done within the source object only.

As I am also a StarUML user, I need some examples to show that it is allowed to do so. Otherwise, I prefer to use the note to reference other diagram only.

Thanks.

Hi,

Have the same problem with StarUML.

Did anyone solved this problem?
I'm starting to think that changing to UML 1.x is better for this tool than using UML 2.0 artifacts.

TIA,
Gabriel
