Re: [ba-ohs-talk] relationships -> graph tool?
I have a hunch that if you download TouchGraph
http://touchgraph.sourceforge.net, and play with his applet demo, the one
that loads an xml file, you will see a way to write some code that reads
rows in a table and writes an xml file of a similar design. I did just
that in my latest project, a Java Wiki. (01)
