Data Communication Methods
When designing an application or component model, for some target environment services, you must consider data communication methods that the services use. Data communication methods are direct-access, outside-execution, and during-execution. These methods coordinate the communication of data for tasks, including concurrent access to data. Generated function code must honor the data communication methods that target environment services use.
The direct-access method specifies that application or component code accesses data directly from memory provided by the target environment services.
This figure shows differences between the outside-execution and during-execution communication methods.
The gray dashed arrows show component code usage of communicated data. When communicating with a service that uses outside-execution data access, the values of input data remain unchanged as the component code executes. Each time the component code accesses the data, the code uses the same value. When communicating with a service that uses during-execution data access, the values of input data can change as the component code executes. Each time the component code accesses the data, the code might use a different value.
For each data communication method, this table describes the service behavior and the expected corresponding behavior of generated code that uses the service that applies the data communication method.

|Communicates with other functions directly by using memory that the target environment manages.
Design your model and configure model data elements based on the data communication methods that the target environment services apply.
