This chapter describes each artifact that can be created

artifacts on the diagram may not actually themselves appear on
There is a close relationship between this material and

Sequence diagrams are not fully developed yet in
ArgoUML. Many aspects are not fully implemented, or may not
behave as expected.
Figure 19.1, “Possible artifacts on a sequence diagram.” shows a
sequence diagram with all possible artifacts displayed.

19.1.1. Limitations Concerning Sequence Diagrams in
The sequence diagram is still rather under-developed in
The biggest difficulties are with the actions behind
the stimuli. These are purely textual in implementation, and
there is no way to link them back to their associated
operations or signals.
