I am trying to understand how to create a UML2.0 compliant component diagram, and I found that different sources suggest different ways of how to show component’s internal structure - particularly, what kind of lines to use for delegating and assembling connectors.
I wouldn't agonize too much about differences and "standards" -- it's not worth it, IMO. If you have any concerns that the notation you use in your diagrams will be misunderstood, why not just include a legend and maybe a brief Help section to explain what you mean when you use each different type of connector. See my thoughts about UML and similar notations in this thread
