Hello All,
I wanted to create a schema in which Parent child relationship needs to be 
maintained where a child can have multiple parents. Like addition of 
ingredients to create a final product, where the ingredients are the parents 
and resultant product is the child.
How should I go to store this kind of data? My requirment also includes to 
explode this structure and should be able to reach up to the top most parent in 
the heirarchy?
If anyone has any reference, from where I can pick this information please 

Thanks in advance.
