This looks indeed promising. I hope your version doesn't suffer from the
same kind of problems I mentioned about the XSLT approach (with Ant 1.4.1
and entity includes when basedir="..").

On a different note, have you considered not depending on a native
executable at all, and do a fully X-platform implementation? For example,
there's JGraph ( and I'm sure others that generate
graph images using pure Java code...

I like the feature you have to graph a sub-graph of the build. We have a
build so hairy in house that the ant2dot stylesheet generates a huge graph
to complex and impossible to see entirely once printed on A size paper.

Something else useful would be some kind of output to Visio (or jgraphpad,
the UI companion to JGraph) so one can manipulate the graph once generated,
instead of getting on image.

Definitely go on with your implementation ;-)

So, I'll try to implement the feature,
and study little more about XSLT to get the flexibility.

I'm considering to extend the <attr> element like this.
<attr name="URL">imgs/<var name="builddir"/>/<var
<attr name="URL">javascript:alert("<var name="description"
<attr name="label"><var name="targetname"/> | <var
The last one will be used with "record" shape.

Please give me advice.
