22.1. Introduction

This chapter describes each artifact that can be created within an Activity diagram. Note that some sub-artifacts of artifacts may not actually themselves appear on the diagram.

There is a close relationship between this material and the Properties Tab of the Details Pane (see Section 13.3, “Properties Tab”). That section covers Properties in general, in this chapter they are linked to specific artifacts.

Figure 22.1, “Possible artifacts on an activity diagram.” shows an Activity Diagram with all possible artifacts displayed.

22.1.1. Limitations Concerning Activity Diagrams in ArgoUML

Activity diagrams are not fully developed yet in ArgoUML. Some aspects are not fully implemented, or may not behave as expected. In particular lacking are call states, swim lanes, control icons (signals), sub-activities, synch states. Interactions with other classifiers are provided by an object-flow-state which is only partly implemented.
