The <connectorBase> Element

Definition and Usage

The <connectorBase> element groups relations defined using connectors.

Connectors can be directly defined in <connectorBase> element that is child of the <head> element of an NCL application. However, since the definition of connectors may be difficult for non-expert users, the idea is to have experts defining connectors, storing them in libraries (connector bases) that may be imported, and making them available to others for creating links.
