XiP Edges

Introduction

There are two types of edges available in XiP application : standard edge and flow control edge.

Standard edge

The standard edge is used for connecting components to create logically flow and defines order of flow calculations. Below image showing how to connect two components.

Each standard edge provides parameters which enables for the user to defining order of flow calculations and deciding whether the passing between components object should be cloned.

Flow Control edge

The flow control edge is useful for managing of logically separated flows existing in one canvas. To create flow control edge please choose the corresponding item in main menu bar as below image showing.

Below images showing one use case of flow control edge.

Both images containing the same set of components (two separate flows) , the only difference is that in the right image output component is connecting with Input CSML component with the use of flow control edge, the difference causes that calculation order is changed. In the first model (left image) both input components are calculated in parallel while in the second model (right image) components are calculated one-by-one (as the image showing).
