I'm pretty new to UML and JSP and I'm getting a bit confused...
How would you go about modelling a JSP system with UML? I've identified classes, which probably correspond to my database tables and Javabeans, but how do you model the actual JSPs? Are they classes too? Are the forms on the pages also classes?
Does anyone know of any helpful case studies?
Thanks!

Try this link:

or read the book 'Building Web Applications with UML' by Jim Conallen

Thanks for the link. But that page doesn't say anything specifically about using JSP and Javabeans. I'm stuck on how to show the interaction between JSPs and Javabeans.
I haven't been able to find much info about this. How do people normally model JSP? Is there a better way than UML?
Thanks

If you read the 'Table Of Contents' over the book 'Building Web Applications with UML' by Jim Conallen then you will see that it covers 'JavaServer Page to UML' and 'UML to JavaServer Page'

I also found this post from Jim Conallen that suppliments his article and I think I see now how to represent Javabeans and forms.
http://www.jguru.com/faq/view.jsp?EID=431982
So that's probably what I'll try and go ahead and do.
Here's the official UML extension

I just think it's strange that there is so little discussion of this - Jim C's links seem to be the only thing that searches throw up...
I'm left wondering what everyone else does about modelling JSPs. I've posted that question in several JSP forums and had no response - is the general thing just to use class diagrams for maybe a database, then just jump in and code??
