Defining the graph in XML format

The XML used to define a graph for Service Manager is an extension of a graph definition standard GXL. The GXL standard defines the basic structure for defining nodes and edges, but is lacking in specifics about graph visualization. The primary extension is the addition of an attr element for conveying visualization specific properties of the nodes and edges. The diagram below illustrates the primary elements involved in the definition. For more detail about the proper structure of the XML, see the link to the schema in the related topics.
