Connectors Used In Toolboxes

When you are creating Toolbox pages for your MDG Technology, you can incorporate both standard UML connectors and new connectors that you have created by extending the UML connectors. You define the connectors you want to use in the Toolbox Profile. The Connector names for Toolbox Page definitions table lists the names you use to identify either:

  • The standard connectors to include in the Toolbox page or
  • The standard connectors you are extending to define new connectors to include in the Toolbox page

Each name you list in the 'Toolbox Page Stereotype elements' is preceded by the namespace UML::. The text in brackets indicates the label name displayed in the default Toolbox pages, where this differs in any way from the UML:: statement text.
