[Uml-devel] Sequence Diagrams

I am currently in the middle of completing my J2EE Architect assignment.
A big part of it is to design an application using UML and seeing as I 
use Linux I thought I would use Umbrello as the tool with which I 
document my design.

One thing I really want to do which the application doesn't seem to 
allow me is to have a synchronous message that doesn't have a return 
arrow in in sequence diagram.

I know it seems odd to do such a thing. The reason I want this is to 
model a JSP call to a servlet controller which in turn will forward to 
another, different, JSP. The controller doesn't return back to the 
original JSP after it has finished its work - but instead goes to 
another JSP.

Does this make sense?
Can Umbrello do this?
I have tried to amend my version of the source code to removed the 
return lines for some of my synchronous calls but I would ideally like 
to double click on the message and have a checkbox for the return arrow.

Please let me know any thoughts on this.

Thank you for your time.
