Subject [jira] [Commented] (TUSCANY-3496) Develop a simple tool that can be used to generate composite diagrams from the xml files
Date Thu, 26 May 2011 16:27:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TUSCANY-3496?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13039764#comment-13039764

C.S. Nirmal J. Fernando commented on TUSCANY-3496:

Hi All,

I am currently facing few problems with GraphViz.

1) We can't place shapes as they overlap each other (we need this cause services overlap on
components etc.). We can load a single image, but then it is not possible to connect a service
to a particular reference correctly (i.e. wires will land all over, instead of connecting
the correct points).

2) We can't create a shape we have for a service/reference directly, but there's a way by
using a postscript file. But this will be out of the question if we can't find a solution
for 1). 

According to my observation graphViz can't provide a solution for 1) hence we might give up
GraphViz :(.

So, other possibility is to use Apache batiks for diagram creation and implement a suitable
algorithm to manage layout.

Any thoughts are highly appreciated!

> I'm looking a simple tool (web based or command) that can generate the composite diagrams
from a list of composite files. One technology we can try is the Apache Batik project.

> This tool can serve multiple purposes:
> 1) Help document our tutorials and samples
> 2) Be integrated with the SCA domain manager to visualize the SCA domain (contributions,
composites, nodes etc)
