I'm new to UML modelling. I am using Rational Rose to model some class diagrams and want to know how/where you represent the various constructors of a given class.

I know Operations list the methods (public, protected and private) and Atrtibutes the state and other variables of the class but where (if any) can I list the constructors (and their arguments) of the class?

UML does not distinguish between constructor and normal method.This is language specific. For UML it is some operation only. So, you need define it only as an operation.

The constructors are methods too. If no constructor defined, there is a default constructor without parameters. If you want to define constructors with parameters, you can define them as methods.
