Class UML 2.5::Connector

Description:

A Connector specifies links that enables communication between two or more instances. In contrast to Associations, which specify links between any instance of the associated Classifiers, Connectors specify links between instances playing the connected parts only.

Direct Superclasses: Feature

Direct Subclasses:

Class Precedence List: Connector, Feature, RedefinableElement, NamedElement, Element

Properties:

contract : Behavior (0 *); -- source Connector
end : ConnectorEnd (2 *); -- source Connector
kind : ConnectorKind (1 1); -- source Connector
redefinedConnector : Connector (0 *); -- source Connector

A Connector may be redefined when its containing Classifier is specialized. The redefining Connector may have a type that specializes the type of the redefined Connector. The types of the ConnectorEnds of the redefining Connector may specialize the types of the ConnectorEnds of the redefined Connector. The properties of the ConnectorEnds of the redefining Connector may be replaced.
