Chapter 16


Activity Diagrams


In this chapter, we will continue our coverage of UML 2.5 Behavioral modeling by concentrating on ACTIVITY DIAGRAMS. The Activity Diagrams within UML 2.5 concentrate on behavioral steps, process, control flow, and object (data) flow.

Many of the diagrams in this chapter are examples of PATTERNS. Patterns are common pieces used in design that we can assemble as needed into structures that are more complex. They will help us recognize what is going on in an existing diagram, and building, out of these pieces, when configured suitably and tailored to your specific purpose, useful models that will accomplish your goals.

This topic area will occupy about 20% of the UML 2.5 Foundation Level exam.
