Clusters

A cluster is a group of nodes forming a sub-graph.

Clusters are visualized with a blue rectangle. Clusters can be folded and unfolded using the context menu on the cluster.

Folded clusters will contain a single “dummy” node which allows you to continue working with the folded cluster as with any other node, e.g.: apply filtering.

Cluster Editor

You can use the Cluster Editor to manage clusters.

Manage clusters within the graph

You can use the context menu on a node to add (selected) nodes(s) to a cluster from within the graph.

Clusters in DOT language

In order to create clusters in a DOT file add the respective nodes to a “subgraph” and prefix the subgraph with “cluster_”.

digraph {
  subgraph "cluster_C1" {
    label = "Feature A"

    Builder
    Component
    Factory
    IComponent 
    POCO1
    POCO2
  }

  ...
}
