Hi,

It is possible to have a connection that link more than one source and one target.

I would like to have connection that link together for example 4 EClass.

For example, I would like to use a line bend point as an anchor point for the connection. It will help to add sub-segments to existing connection.

This functionnality is available in GMF but I didn't find it with Graphiti?

Thanks,

Regards,

Sorry, this functionality is not (yet) available.We already though about
such a feature, but found that is bears more complexity then it seems at
first glance. In fact the Graphiti metamodel would support such a scenario
(connections can have children, which could be Anchors), but the framework
does not support it.

A way to emulate this is using several connections and routing them in a way
that they lie on top of each other and appear as just one line.

If you see the need for supporting this, please raise a enhancement bugzilla
for Graphiti.

Thanks,

Yes I definitively need a multiple source/target connection feature.

In my specific case, I want to create an electrical circuit editor and multiple connection are required because it simplify the basic creation of the schematic. Take a look at the following circuit and you will understand.

Thanks for your answer
