UML 1.5 Deployment Diagram Definition

Both component and Deployment Diagrams depict the physical architecture of a computer-based system.  

Deployment Diagrams are made up of a graph of nodes connected by communication associations to show the physical configuration of the software and hardware.  

Components are physical units of packaging in software, including:

  • External libraries
  • Operating systems
  • Virtual machines

The physical hardware is made up of nodes. Each component belongs on a node. Components are shown as rectangles with two tabs at the upper left.

Following is a Deployment Diagram that shows the relationships of software and hardware components for a real estate transaction.
