           Summary: Provide data dependency graph view in provenance browser
           Product: Kepler
           Version: 1.0.0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: mcphillips at ecoinformatics.org
        ReportedBy: mcphillips at ecoinformatics.org
         QAContact: kepler-dev at ecoinformatics.org

The provenance browser currently provides four views of a workflow run:  the
raw trace file, the "Collection History", an invocation dependency graph, and a
"Dependency History" graph.  The latter is a hybrid of the invocation
dependencies and the data dependencies.  What we don't have is a pure data
dependency graph.

As an example, compare the data dependency graph
(http://daks.ucdavis.edu/~sbowers/prov/pq1.gif) for the COMAD implementation of
the 1st provenance challenge (http://twiki.ipaw.info/bin/view/Challenge/DAKS)
with the dependency history view provided by the provenance browser (attached).
 I'd like to be able to view the first kind of graph in the provenance browser
as well.
