Subject [jira] [Commented] (SANDBOX-339) [Dot Export] Adding vertex attribute
Date Wed, 06 Jul 2011 09:43:16 GMT


Simone Tripodi commented on SANDBOX-339:

{{Properties}} is *too much* flexible, that's true that allows DOT exporter be adaptive to
further DOT versions, but at the same time the {{DotExport}} loses all its power when producing
corrupted outputs.

If the user has to check by *it*self the syntax/semantic correctness of each attribute...
why use the {{commons-graph}} dot exporter? In that way users are forced to learn the language,
while the purpose should be producing transparently the {{*.dot}} files and open with a rendered
provided by a 3rd party. Otherwise, just a little more spicy and the user can write its smarter
version :)

I'd prefer producing automatically a working subset of the DOT language rather than be so
flexible to produce potentially corrupted outputs.

A different strategy is needed, let's think about it

the attributes of the vertices through a {{Map<Vertex, Properties>}}
