One of the data visualization tags required by the teams working on the Oracle Fusion Application Module for Human Resource Management, was a component capable of rendering organization charts. Hierarchical structures from CEO all the way down to the youngest trainee. In a pleasing, graphically interesting, somewhat animated fashion. And so the ADF team developed the Hierarchy Viewer. And since they developed it anyway, we can now make use of it as well. While it may not be the component you will most frequently use, it is certainly an interesting presentation option for special data structures. This component can work against the same tree data binding you would use for tree tables or trees, and can therefore be configured in a very simple, declarative fashion.
In this article some simple examples of how to use this new component. This article is the short summary of a presentation and demonstration I did at the recent ODTUG Kaleidoscope 2009 conference (late June, Monterey). It demonstrates how the conference’s session schedule can be represented in the Hierarchy Viewer.
