Hi All,

Any recommendations for commercial or open source libraries for doing chart based reports in JSPs.

I am creating the report data in a sort of table model, which internally keeps it as an ArrayList of String[]s. It would be great to have a reporting solution where I can pass that data as is, or may be convert it into csv or xml and build a chart from that.

Googling turned up http://www.quadbase.com/espresschart/index.html, has anybody used this?

I also had a quick look at JFreeChart, but it is still in beta, and seems to have had problems running on Linux systems without x-windows running.

How about using a Flash solution?

Thanks

Sonny

JCharts
Vs.
JFreeChart

Anybody?

From a quick look, JChart appears to have a simpler, cleaner interface, but the images produced by JFreeChart look nicer.
JFreeChart + cewolf seems quite popular, cewolf tags appear to be pretty good. Anyone knows of any good tutorials on cewolf, other than the one on cewolf homepage?

In either of these how easy or difficult is to specify the colours to be used, or to put numberical values in the bars shown, I am mainly interested in barcharts at this point.

Any comments to point me in the right direction are appreciated
Thanks
