Tree Generator is a mechanism for representing data in a tree like structure.
The goal is to represent spatial and temporal relationships more effectively
than may be accomplished in text based information reporting. Simple shape
figures are used to convey the nature and boundaries of data objects (circles,
rectangles, triangles etc). Straight lines are used to establish connectivity
between data objects with distance (length) and direction establishing
hierarchical and/or temporal relationships between data objects.
WISL has developed
a generalized facility (Tree File
Generator) that imports transactional data from operational business
information systems such as logistics, retail sales, manufacturing or from corporate
ERP systems. Appropriate
data files are maintained and access is
provided to these
files with Tree Report Generator which
generates xml files that may be accessed for display by Tree Report Display.
Perl along with Java is employed to handle most of the display and interactive data access.
Open Source MySQL is employed to provide for record selection and sorting of the
objects used in Tree Display.
Backup of the data base may be provided by employing RAID technology
and/or a redundant webserver.
