In UML Distilled, I bemoaned the fact that there isn't a good book on teaching UML's activity diagrams. There still isn't, but I recently came across Conrad Bock's articles on UML 2.0 . Amongst these there is a series of articles on activity diagrams that go into more depth than I was able to cover in Distilled. (For those who don't know, Conrad Bock is one of the leaders of the activity diagram work in UML 2.)

if you found this article useful, please share it. I appreciate the feedback and encouragement
