A connection is a link between two actions within a Process Integration scenario.
The following connection types exist:


Sequence represents the sequence of two actions within the same application component. A sequence is required for portraying the Process Integration Scenario process, however it contains no additional information.

      Cross-Component Connection

A cross-component connection connects actions from different application components with each other. These actions exchange messages with each other in a Process Integration scenario. A cross-component connection defines the interfaces and mappings used.

Cross-component connections differentiate between synchronous and asynchronous communication (see Communication Parameters).


A connection is not an object that can be reused. It is only defined within a specific Process Integration scenario.
