Creating conjugate ports in SOAML and UML diagrams

You can create a connection between ports with the same type by setting one port as a conjugate. The conjugate property reverses the provider and required interfaces so that you can connect ports with similar types.


  1. In the diagram editor, click a port.
  2. 2. In the Properties view, on the General page, click Conjugated.
  3. 3. In the diagram editor, you can now connect the conjugated port to another port with the same type.


In the following diagram, the port named hub is of type axle and is a conjugate. Because the port named wheel is also of type axle, the two ports can be connected.
