I was toying with the idea of a modeler in which a component had subcomponents. IE you have an application as a component, and that application might have say two (or more) HTTP Listeners as subcomponents of the application, where I might want to trend HTTP stats on each listener.


Or another example might be a SQL Server where databases are the components, and tables are subcomponents of the database.


I found this: so the concept of subcomponents looks easy enough to pull of, but I'm curious how would subcomponents be displayed in the UI? Would/Could they be nested beneath the component?


Any one done something like this, have any screen shots of how it looks?

    Re: Subcomponents

    I did something like that for my IBM MQ zenpack, basically the subcomponents and components show up in the GUI as components of the device:



    here the MQQueue and MQChannel are subcomponents of their MQManager (you can see in the screen)

    Re: Subcomponents

    Right now there's no way to get a nested display of components on a device. The UI component and API feeding it just isn't setup to handle subcomponents.
