UML Deployment Diagram - Instance vs Class
« on: April 23, 2014, 12:51:06 am »

Hoping someone can help with my UML/Sparx EA 10 question.

I have a deployment node class called Web Server, dragged into it is an artifact called webcode (to represent the web server code).

I am creating a deployment diagram of Web Server instances in my production environment. To achieve this I drag into a new deployment diagram the Web Server class and select "as instance of class".

None of my instances contain any reference to the embedded artifact webcode. Is there a way that my webcode artifact can be seen on this instance diagram?

I have read about the Run-Time State feature where I could specify specific attributes and set these at the instance level. I guess I could use that to show the relevant artifacts at the instance level.

Thanks for any advice!
