An interface specifies operations and signals that are used or implemented by blocks.
The stereotype of interfaces is <<BlockInterface>>. You need the stereotype when you create document templates, queries, forms, or search for an interface in the tool. In the Stereotypes window you will find the stereotype BlockInterface under DomainElement. The stereotype contains the sub stereotype External BlockInterface. 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 passed on from the main stereotype.
