A port defines an interaction point through which a block offers or demands services via interfaces.
The stereotype of port is <<Port>>. You need the stereotype when you create document templates, queries, forms, or search for a port in the tool. In the Stereotypes window you will find the stereotype Port under DomainElement. The stereotype contains the sub stereotypes FullPort and ProxyPort. You can create additional sub stereotypes or user-defined properties. Properties do not have to be created separately for each sub stereotype, since the properties are inherited from the main stereotype. You can also create standard ports. Its stereotype is <<StandardPort>>.
