UML14 — UML RTF 1.4 Issue: Confusing example of sequence diagram

  • Key: UML14-994
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3282
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: NIST ( Mr. Conrad Bock)
  • Summary:

    [p 102, notation] An arrow with the arrowhead pointing to an
    object symbol within the frame of the diagram maps into a
    Stimulus dispatched by a CreateAction

    Figure 3-48 [p 100] shows the above for ob1:C1, and ob2:C2, but
    with lifelines below each one sending messages (eg, to ob2:C2
    and ob4:C4 respectively). Does this mean the constructor of
    the object, that is the object creation method, is sending
    messages? These objects aren't notated as active, so they
    can't send messages on their own. It would be good to explain
    this in the above text.
