DD12 — Consider possibility of adding Port concept to DI

  • Key: DD12-3
  • Legacy Issue Number: 18680
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Fraunhofer FOKUS ( Max Bureck)
  • Summary:

    Hi, the concept of ports, attached to the outside bounds of an element allowing connections between elements is a widespread concept. Adding this concept would help generic layouting algorithms taking ports into account (such as KIELER) doing a much better job. Since DI defines abstract subclasses, meta models without ports can simply choose to not use the concept.
