Combined fragments and operands

A combined fragment bundles different interaction fragments called operands.

UML sequence diagram of a combined fragment

The combined fragment has an operator that indicates how the interaction fragments are combined.

Each operand has a guard that determines whether or not the interaction should occur.

The combined fragment will always enclose the control flow between its top and bottom edges. This means that it will cover any target that has an activation during the combined fragment.
