I'm wondering if anybody knows something about using MVC (Model-View-Controller) along with UML. MVC is a kind of architecture which you can use for making a difference between the data layer and the interface layer.

I found some information on this topic on the Internet but I'm still not sure how to implement this in my UML diagrams.

I hope someone can help with this problem/issue.
Any kind of feedback is welcome.

Thank you.

Hi P. Beijers,

Try searching for Boundary, Entity and Control. This is the same pattern using different names. You are able to use these items by specifying the boundary, entity or control stereotypes on a class.

When you use these classes on diagrams, they could be shown using special symbols (circular). It depends on the settings of Enterprise Architect whether or not these symbols are shown.

I hope this answers some of your questions,
