Excellent! My requirement is to draw multiple directional edges between the same two nodes, and have labels on these edges? Can I do that with this component? <br />

Yes, the product supports multiple directional edges between the same two nodes, and labels (or any decoration) on edges. You can refer for instance to the sample "Link Decorations" (samples/diagram/linkdecorations) which illustrates arrow and label decorations on edges. When multiple edges exist between the same pair of nodes, you typically need to use a graph (or link) layout algorithm such that the edges are nicely "bundled", that is displayed as a set of parallel shapes. You can try for instance the ShortLinkLayout class, with the multiple edge bundling feature enabled: shortLinkLayout.sameShapeForMultipleLinks = true. <div>&nbsp;</div> Hope this helps (and sorry for the long delay for answering).

Ilog Elixir is a real great product. Having said that, the documentation and support is lacking. I need to make a simple diagram like the network monitor example without all th bells and whistles. I need to programaticly add a root node and then children nodes to it. Such as a cloud and its nodes. I need to have separate clouds with its nodes as well. I have spent many hours looking at the Network Monitor example I even got a stripped down version in my project. Problem is, none of the code is documented. I just need some simple examples. I am hoping this is the place to get help. My company just ordered the enterprise edition, this is a lot of money for little if no support. Please prove me wrong. --Thanks

Thanks for your feedback, and sorry for having noticed your comment so late. I strongly hope that you found your way for implementing your application. I also hope that the detailed documentation and numerous samples provided with Elixir Enterprise finally proved to be useful. <div>&nbsp;</div> To answer your question, the support for Elixir and Elixir Enterprise goes through the forums: <a href="http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/forums/category.jspa?categoryID=276">http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/forums/category.jspa?categoryID=276</a> . <br /> Additionally, for Elixir Enterprise, the regular IBM support channel is available. <div>&nbsp;</div> If there is anything we can do for helping you, please post your detailed question on the Forum or contact the IBM support channel. <br /> This also holds for any question you may still have about the Network Monitoring sample. Its source code does contain a number of comments, but if this is not enough just ask on the Forum or via the support.
