UML22 — assembly connectors

  • Key: UML22-201
  • Legacy Issue Number: 9578
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Dassault Systemes ( Nerijus Jankevicius)
  • Summary:

    Chapter 8.3.2
    An assembly connector is a connector between two components that defines

    that one component provides the services that another component
    requires. An
    assembly connector is a connector that is defined from a required
    interface
    or port to a provided interface or port.

    All constraints are using terms "connector between Interface and Port"
    also.
    I suggest to change or remove this misleading text.

    Agreed. This text is highly misleading in a number of ways:

    (1) It suggests that connectors connect components. They actually connect
    parts typed by components.

    (2) It suggests that connectors connect interfaces – which they do not
    (because only connectable elements can be connected and interfaces are not
    connectable elements).
