Connector

To establish inter-object interaction you need to connect the respective interface elements of agents with connectors. A connector is a line connecting two ports or two variables. 

Connecting two ports means that messages will be passed between them. 

Connecting variables means that they will have the same value at any moment of time (changes of one variable will be immediately propagated to another variable declared as external one).
