Hi all,

I need to use charts in my project (nothing fancy, in terms of graphics, beauty, and the like.) I looked a bit on the web and there are several packages available so I'm looking for a recommendation. Which one is good? How is jfreechart?

I'm not sure yet how will I display the charts -- in an applet or by exporting them to images. I think it would be the latter.

Thanks for your advise!

Eddy

You can try JFreeChart.

Or Jchart2D: http://sourceforge.net/projects/jchart2d/

Looks like it doesn't do nice pictures, though. Is it really only tracing, or can it do pie charts, etc.?

Sorry, I forgot to mention I'm working with Google's GWT and I need something that integrates with it. ofcgwt seems pretty cool. Anyone has experience with it? Or any other charts package that integrates with GWT?

Thanks,
Eddy

In the past I have used http://code.google.com/p/charts4j/ with my GWT code.
You might also want to evaluate http://cewolf.sourceforge.net/new/index.html

Thanks Maneesh. In the meantime ofcgwt is doing the job for me pretty well, but I'll take a look at your recommendations as well.
