I have been playing with Papyrus for about a day. I have watched all the instruction videos I can find and have read two PDF files (TutorialOnPapyrusUSE_d20101001 and PapyrusTutorial_OnSequenceDiagrams_v0.1_d2010100). I have successfully created class diagrams. I cannot understand how to create sequence diagrams.|
My stumbling blocks are:
1. I do not understand how classes/types are supposed to be associated with Lifelines. I learned from another post that to select the class/type of a Lifeline, I have to create a property/parameter/... and associate *that* with a class. I do not understand why. I do not understand how or where this should be done.
2. I hacked my was past (1) by creating property elements as children of a dummy node. I then changed the type of the property to a particular class. Only then could I assign a class to a Lifeline. However, I could not create an async message from one Lifeline to another. I added an operation on the class called simulate(). I expected that dragging the async connector from one Lifeline to another would allow me to invoke the call the operation simulate(). However, that is not the case. I see only the circle-with-a-line-through-it icon.
I need additional examples, samples, manuals, documentation, or tutorials. What am I missing?
