2.2 Component Based

In Dezyne programs are divided into components by means of formal interfaces isolating the components from their surroundings. Components are composed into systems by connecting their ports. Communication across port must follow the behavior as defined by their respective interfaces. An interface behavior describes the message exchange between the components on either side of the interface that separates them. A component behavior defines the interactions in terms of the messages exchanged across all of the component ports.

Message or event maps onto a function call.
