Block diagrams are used in figures throughout this document to illustrate groupings of functionality. The blocks in these diagrams represent abstract concepts and are not meant to imply a particular implementation.
In this document, the name of a type without the inclusion of “Type” indicates an instance of the type. For example, the following phrase, “an instance of ConnectionConfigurationSetType,” can be replaced with “a ConnectionConfigurationSet”. The phrase “instances of ConnectionEndpointType” can be replaced with “ConnectionEndpoints”.
