    TermDefinitionApplicationMore Information
    stereotypeA stereotype is a custom extension of the modeling language. Stereotypes provide a mechanism to extend the architecture language elements by adding domain-specific metadata.Apply stereotypes to elements: root-level architecture, component architecture, connectors, ports, data interfaces, and value types of a model. A model element can have multiple stereotypes. Stereotypes provide model elements with a common set of property fields, such as mass, cost, and power.Extend Architectural Design Using Stereotypes
    propertyA property is a field in a stereotype. For each element the stereotype is applied to, specific property values are specified.Use properties to store quantitative characteristics, such as weight or speed, that are associated with a model element. Properties can also be descriptive or represent a status. You can view and edit the properties of each element in the architecture model using the Property Inspector.
    profileA profile is a package of stereotypes to create a self-consistent domain of element types.Author profiles and apply profiles to a model using the Profile Editor. You can store stereotypes for a project in one profile or in several. Profiles are stored in XML files when they are saved.
