If you like to get hand on experience with linking models you can download the demo models and use the configuration editor to link and run the linked models. The demo models are a dummy river model and a dummy ground water model. Both models will when running progress in time a do time stepping, but no calculations are carried out. However, these models will have different types of exchange items, so you can try out how to link them. When the linked system is running the models will actually exchange data, which means that you also get some idea of the time spend for data exchange (it is pretty fast...).
Below you can find a step by step instruction. Enjoy..
