Example: Actor Transaction Diagram

Published 2008-10-31 | Author: Gabor Tjong A Hung

A sample of a global Actor Transaction Diagram or ATD of the Design & Engineering Methodology for Organizations (DEMO) methodology. The most interesting part of the example is the definition of the custom square arrow the and diamond in circle node shape.

Note: The square arrow is now available in the CVS version of PGF. In the example the arrow shape has been renamed to squarea to avoid conflict.
