UML Sequence Diagram Loop
Uses of UML Sequence Diagram Loops
Initially, Unified Modeling Language (UML) diagrams were used as a general-purpose modeling language in the field of software engineering. In time, its usage has extended to:
- Improving integration between structural models (e.g. class diagrams) and behavioral models (e.g. activity diagrams).
- Defining a hierarchy and breaking down a software system into components and sub-components.
The UML Sequence Diagram Loop visualizes the interactions and the order in which they must occur to trigger a specific event.
How to create your own UML Sequence Diagram Loop
Break down your project into steps.
Using shapes, define each of the steps and actors involved in the process.
Use arrows to define interactions and conditionality.
Use the arrows to define the connections.
Model the process flow by adding text on the lines and arrows between the shapes.
