UML Deployment diagram showing use of a Deployment connector to denote that an Artifact is deployed on a Node.


A Deployment is a type of Dependency relationship that indicates the deployment of an artifact onto a node or executable target, typically in a Deployment diagram. A Deployment can be made at type and instance levels. At the type level, a Deployment would be made for every instance of the node. Deployment can also be specified for an instance of a node, so that a node's instances can have varied deployed artifacts. With composite structures modeled with nodes defined as Parts, Parts can also serve as targets of a Deployment relationship.
