1. A method for configuring a dataflow graph template that includes one or more subgraph interfaces, the method including:

  • accessing one or more subgraph interfaces,wherein each of the one or more subgraph interfaces is stored,wherein each of the one or more subgraph interfaces is associated with a unique identifier for providing a reference to the subgraph interface, andwherein each of the one or more subgraph interfaces has one or more flow junctions;

    accessing a dataflow graph template that includes a dataflow graph and that further includes a reference for identifying a given subgraph interface of the one or more subgraph interfaces;

    accessing an implementation subgraph that conforms with the given subgraph interface;

    configuring the dataflow graph template by;

    accessing one or more flow junctions of the given subgraph interface referenced by the dataflow graph template;

    linking the implementation subgraph into the dataflow graph template, with the implementation subgraph being linked in accordance with the given subgraph interface in the dataflow graph template; and

    determining, for each of the one or more flow junctions of the given subgraph interface, a direction of metadata propagation,where the determined direction is one of an inward transfer of metadata from the flow junction on the given subgraph interface to a component of the dataflow graph or an outward transfer of the metadata from the flow junction on the given subgraph interface to the component of the dataflow graph; and

    storing the configured dataflow graph template.
