UML Sequence Diagram is a type of Interaction Diagrams that describes the interactions between objects and classes that are involved in the scenario and the sequence of messages exchanged between them.

UML Sequence Diagram represents the processes and objects that occur at the same time as lifelines (parallel vertical lines), and the messages exchanged between them as horizontal arrows.

Sequence Diagrams are very popular in dynamic modeling.

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.
