A Node is an information container for in- or outbound information flowing through an iCore system. Individual Nodes are used to identify and trace information at different stages in the process flow. The Node reveals what kind of information it contains at the present stage.

Every Node has meta data attached to it. The type of meta data is defined by the business flow using Component definitions. The user can also define any number of Node attributes.

Two Nodes can relate to each other in the following ways: 

  • Association – A "loose" relation
  • Parent-child – A hierarchical relation

A relation between two Nodes always has a direction. There are no restrictions on how many relations of any type or direction a Node can have, except that:

  • A Node cannot reference itself.
  • There can only be one reference between two Nodes given a direction.

A Node can be referenced to by a Log entry.
