(Eng) Using Xslt for a new TreeView Visualization

Posted on June 30, 2011

1308909040_sitemapI recently made an article about XSLT transformation to explain how easy it is to transform XML information to either send the new format to another tool or to directly create reports (I will present this custom reporting feature soon). One of the thing we would like to be improved in Aras Innovator is the treebrowser capability. In the existing treebrowser, for example, it is not possible to read properties that are existing on the relationship between two items. The best example for that is the quantity of a child item in a BOM. The issue is that if you change a quantity in a BOM, the side to side comparaison tool using the treebrowser won’t notice any difference. So we are looking for other treebrowser tools which we could implement for customers. Some tools need to be supplied with xml based graph format like graphml. For that matter we use Xslt to transform the native AML (XML with Aras core model format) into the graphml format. Here is a quick video presenting how we do it:
