I have a code which is executing correctly(gragh is displayed) when I run as a standalone through Command Prompt. But when I place the same code in a servlet, I am not getting the graph displayed.

The code is as follows,

import java.awt.*;
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JPanel;

public class semilog extends JPanel {
double[] data;
public semilog(){
public semilog(double[] data){;
final int PAD = 20;

protected void paintComponent(Graphics g) {
Graphics2D g2 = (Graphics2D)g;
int w=getWidth();
int h = getHeight();

// Draw ordinate.
g2.draw(new Line2D.Double(PAD, PAD, PAD, h-PAD));

// Draw abcissa.
g2.draw(new Line2D.Double(PAD, h-PAD, w-PAD, h-PAD));

//some other code


public void draw(double[] data) {
JFrame f = new JFrame();
f.add(new semilog(data));



When I call this code from a servlet, f.isVisible() and f.isShowing() are returning true but no graph is displayed. But when I run through Command Prompt, it is working.

Can anyone help me with this?

You can't run Swing code in a servlet. Well, perhaps you can, but the actual displaying of the Swing components won't work. You'll need an applet for that, or use a different way for showing the graph.

The good news is, an image can work:
Of course you can use "image/jpeg" and "JPEG" instead of PNG if you prefer JPG images.

Moving to Servlets.

Thankyou Rob. Thanks a lot. The code is working.
