Note: There is a newer version of this specification see VEC 2.1.0

A ComponentConnector is a grouping of ComponentPorts and represents a logical abstraction of a connector of an EEComponent. When the ComponentNode is realized by an EEComponentRole the ComponentConnector will result in a HousingComponent.

It is permitted that a ComponentConnector is a 150% definition of connector.
