The sequence diagram can be used to design object-oriented software; however, its modeling principles are lack of research. In this paper, its application in software design was studied, and its inherent linkage with object-oriented programming was discussed, and the interactive mechanism among its elements was explored. The modeling principles for it were proposed; and its application in Model Driven Architecture (MDA) software paradigm was analyzed; and finally the model represented with it,
more » ... specially the transformation and traceability of models in MDA software paradigm were analyzed. This research is useful to optimize software modeling and to automate model transformation in MDA software paradigm.
