Graph Modification Earlier, we saw how to add vertices and edges to a new graph by calling the addVertex and addEdge methods on the Graph interface. Likewise, there are corresponding methods for removing graph components.
All of these methods are modeled on the java. There are two convenience helpers available to assist with this when adding components to a graph; both of them take care of automatically adding vertices whenever edges are added: The Graphs utility class provides methods such as addEdgeWithVertices The GraphBuilder framework also allows you to use method chaining when populating data in a new graph.
Note that building the graph proceeds in two phases; first buildEmptySimpleGraph builds an empty graph instance for the specified graph type, then GraphBuilder takes over for populating the vertices and edges.
Vertex and Edge Suppliers JGraphT optionally allows you to provide a graph with vertex and edge suppliers. When these are available, the graph will automatically construct a new object instance whenever one is not explicitly supplied by the corresponding add method. Modification Listeners JGrapht provides a framework for reacting to graph modifications via the ListenableGraph interface. For example, suppose your graph represents a CAD model being visualized; then every time the graph is edited, all affected views can be automatically refreshed from listener events.
Graph Generation Besides constructing vertices and edges individually, applications can also generate graph instances according to predefined patterns.
This is often useful for generating test cases or default topologies. JGraphT provides a number of different generators for this purpose in the org. JGraphT provides for this via package org. A graph iterator produces vertices in the requested order; as the iteration proceeds, additional information such as when a particular edge is traversed can be obtained by registering a TraversalListener.
The specific meaning of traversal events varies with the iterator type. JGraphT provides quite a few of these, so they are subcategorized under the org. For example, various shortest path algorithms are implemented in org. In cases where there are alternative algorithms available for the same problem, the commonality is abstracted via an interface in org. This makes it easier to write application code which selects an optimal algorithm implementation for a given graph instance.
To address this, JGraphT provides package org. These can also be used for data interchange with other applications. Directed edges are rendered with round brackets, whereas undirected edges are rendered with curly brackets. Custom edge attributes are not rendered. Graph Cloning The Graph interface does not expose a public clone method, because we do not require all implementations to be cloneable.
However, all subclasses of AbstractBaseGraph are cloneable. The clone semantics are shallow in that the same vertex and edge objects are shared between the original graph and the clone; however, the vertex and edge sets and all associated connectivity structures are copied, not shared, so that the two graphs are otherwise independent. Here are the rules used: the two graph instances must be of identical concrete class e.
DefaultDirectedGraph the vertex sets of the two graph instances must be equal using the definition from java. If you were expecting a structural comparison instead, then you might want to investigate the isomorphism package. For example, suppose you have two graphs with anonymous edges, but the vertex set is the same, and you want to decide whether the graphs are effectively equal.
In that case, you can run an isomorphism inspector with a comparator specified for the vertices. Then JGraphT can tell you whether the two graphs are structurally equivalent and if so, provide a mapping between the edge objects. Graph Wrappers Besides core graph data structures, JGraphT also provides a number of useful wrappers which allow you to define live transformed views into other graphs: AsGraphUnion : a union of two underlying graphs AsSubgraph : a subgraph possibly induced of an underlying graph AsUndirectedGraph : an undirected view of an underlying directed graph with edge directions ignored AsUnmodifiableGraph : an unmodifiable view of an underlying graph AsUnweightedGraph : an unweighted view of a underlying weighted graph ignoring all edge weights and treating them as 1.
Now you can run JGraphT algorithms on top of your Guava graph, or run our importers or exporters against it. All you need to do is wrap your JGraphT graph with org. JGraphXAdapter as in the following example: import com. You can also find the full source code in github. Browsing Unit Tests Another good way to learn how to use the various classes provided by JGraphT is to study their usage in unit tests.
Overview for Application Developers
JGraphT is an open-source Java class library which not only provides us with various types of graphs but also many useful algorithms for solving most frequently encountered graph problems. Creating Graphs JGraphT supports various types of graphs. Multi-Graphs Other than simple-graphs, API also provides us with multigraphs graphs with multiple paths between two vertices. Also, we can always create all compositions of these graphs. Further API details can be found here. A subgraph is said to be strongly connected only if there is a path between each pair of its vertices. A graph which has it is a Eulerian Graph.
