Hello people,
We are currently looking for a charting component library to replace our need to develop the charts ourselves. We need the charts available for both the normal java-application and a servlet based web-application. Can anyone recommend any products/libraries and give some feedback on using them?
How was the support for the product?
Have you encountered any bugs?
How did you find the performance and pricing?
What is your general feel of the product?
etc. etc. whatever comes to mind.
We have been especially looking at MonarchCharts lately (http://www.singleton-labs.com/mcharts.html) which seems to have the charts we need and the graphics are very good looking. Does anyone have any experience on this?
We also looked at http://www.visualmining.com/ which was very feature-rich and good looking but seemed a bit expensive.
http://www.objectplanet.com/EasyCharts/ looked ok except that it seems to be missing some of the charts we need. any experience on these?

thanks,

Have you tried JFreeChart?
www.object-refinery.com/jfreechart/samples.html
It's free, and includes complete source code subject to the GNU LGPL...so you can easily extend it, if you need to.

I use sitraka jclass chart. It's fine for server side java. You need to know it doesn't write gif files, and if you want nice anti-aliased graphics you need to combine it with jimi (anyone tried using JAI?).
