Collaboration Diagrams

Collaboration diagrams are another means for representing the interactions and relationships between objects. Unlike sequence diagrams, however, they do not focus on the timeline of interaction, but on the structural connections between collaborating objects. Of central interest are the messages and their intent, when creating a collaboration diagram. The chronological order of messages is represented by numbers preceding each message.
