Title: Use of Components & Nodes, and Instances of
Post by: CJ on November 05, 2003, 10:25:06 am
G'day g'day,

Not sure when/where to use components and nodes, and instances of both.

Say I have a source component that compiles into an exe component that is meant to be deployed to a type of node.  When  created, these three things are initially classifiers.

Do I use these classifiers in all diagrams, or do I create and use instances?  When do I use instances vs classifiers and in what kind of diagrams?

If there are relationships between the classifiers, do I recreate these relationships between instances of these classifiers?

Thanks in advance.
