UML Deployment Diagram is a type of Structure Diagrams that shows the physical deployment of information generated by the software programs.

The information generated by the software is called “artifact”. The hardware with installed software is called “node”. Thus, UML Deployment Diagram models the physical deployment of artifacts on nodes.

UML Deployment Diagram is intended for visualization of elements and components of the program that exist only on the stage of its runtime. The development of the Deployment Diagram is the last stage of the specification of the software system model.

UML Deployment Diagram represents the nodes as boxes, and the artifacts as rectangles within the boxes. The nodes can have subnodes that are represented as nested boxes. One node on the UML Deployment Diagram can conceptually describe more than one physical node.

There are two types of nodes: device nodes and execution environment nodes.

Device nodes are the computing resources with capability of processing memory and executing of software. An execution environment node (EEN) is a computer system that is located inside a device node.

The other shapes the most used in UML Deployment Diagrams are:

  • Communication path - a line that connect two device nodes and represents communications between them.
  • Package - a file shaped box that groups together all the device nodes.
  • Data Store, Frames, Components UML, and others.

The Rapid UML Solution for ConceptDraw PRO contains 13 vector stencils libraries with 393 interactive shapes that you can use to design your UML diagrams.

To design a Deployment Diagram use the UML Deployment Diagram library.

UML Deployment Diagram library contains 31 shapes:

  • Device node
