This kind of diagram is an interaction diagram that shows how objects operate with one another and in what order. It is a construct of a message sequence chart. A sequence diagram shows object interactions arranged in time sequence. In the example above, the sequence diagram shows the UML type of sequence diagram example. Sequence diagrams specifically focus on the “lifelines” of an object and how they communicate with other objects to perform a function before the lifeline ends.
There are some components in a sequence diagram. Class roles describe the way an object will behave in context. Activation boxes represent the time an object needs to complete a task. When an object is busy executing a process or waiting for a reply message, use a thin gray rectangle placed vertically on its lifeline. Messages are arrows that represent communication between objects. Lifelines are vertical dashed lines that indicate the object’s presence over time. Objects can be terminated early using an arrow labeled “<< destroy >>” that points to an X. A repetition or loop within a sequence diagram is depicted as a rectangle.
There are two types of sequence diagrams: UML ones and code-based ones. We have the UML sequence diagram provided above. We hope these examples will help you make your own sequence diagrams!
