ROR and UML

hello,
I work on a project called: experimentation platform of an online
social network. This project is a layer under the Diaspora social
network written in Ruby On Rails follows the MVC architecture.
for my internship report, I am obliged to do UML diagram.
what i can not do is the class diagram, I do not know what I shall
present: controllers or models?!
if the controllers, I would have no relations between classes, and if
the models, I would have no method. If I link to each model’s
cotrolleur and I made ​​the relationship between the models, the
controllers that I created whould have no model associated with them
so it will not be presented in the diagram.
how can i do please.
Thank you

In UML we have a controllers and models. At class diagram the
associations
are based at models and in the box should have the methods and
variables.
What UML diiagram you’ll do?

Sorry any english’s error. I don’t know write very well

UML modelling the controllers in a Rails app is completely useless, so
go
for your models.

im using to do class diagram, i what i know in every class, we have
variables and methods. if i use just models, some are empty (without
methode) and there’s many controller without a model. then we can find a
controller using many model.

Adel, you should be able to use class diagrams for all your models.
Then
you could model you controller using interaction diagrams (i.e. the flow
through
your system). However, it may be easier to start with use-case diagrams
to
document
the controllers and pick a subset of the controllers to construct
sequence
diagrams. I
like use-case diagrams here because it maps well to the services that a
controller
provides. Next, if this is a modular application that tends to use a
service
oriented architecture (SOA) style, then I would recommend starting with
the
package
diagram and drill down from there. In summary, you’ll do the following:

  1. service oriented architecture (SOA)
    package diagram

    1. models
      class diagrams

    2. controllers
      use-case diagrams
      sequence diagrams

I have indented the above so that you know what child diagrams exist
within
the parent diagram. For example, within a package, I can have class
diagram(s). Well, I wish that this information can help you to get
started
and your tool should be able to nest diagrams and generate system
architecture documentation. Furthermore, there are other diagrams for
documenting concurrency and you should be able to google for that
information.

Good luck,

How about you try presenting Sequence diagrams?
That way you can show them the flow what is actually happening for each
functionality your site have.
