Dear All,

I have created a StackedBar chart using JFreeChart. it working fine. the code is :->

import java.awt.Dimension;
import java.text.DecimalFormat;
import java.text.NumberFormat;

import org.jfree.chart.ChartFactory;
import org.jfree.chart.ChartPanel;
import org.jfree.chart.JFreeChart;
import org.jfree.chart.axis.CategoryAxis;
import org.jfree.chart.axis.ValueAxis;
import org.jfree.chart.labels.ItemLabelAnchor;
import org.jfree.chart.labels.ItemLabelPosition;
import org.jfree.chart.labels.StandardCategoryItemLabelGenerator;
import org.jfree.chart.plot.PlotOrientation;
import org.jfree.chart.renderer.xy.XYItemRenderer;
import org.jfree.chart.title.TextTitle;
import org.jfree.ui.ApplicationFrame;
import org.jfree.ui.TextAnchor;
import org.jfree.ui.RectangleInsets;
import org.jfree.ui.RefineryUtilities;
import org.jfree.chart.axis.*;
public class First2 extends ApplicationFrame
public First2(final String title) {


final CategoryDataset dataset = createDataset();
final JFreeChart chart = createChart(dataset);
final ChartPanel chartPanel = new ChartPanel(chart);
chartPanel.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(500, 270));


private CategoryDataset createDataset() {
// row keys...
final String series1 = "S1";
final String series2 = "S2";
final String series3 = "S3";

// column keys...
final String category1 = "January";
final String category2 = "February";
final String category3 = "March";

// create the dataset...
final DefaultCategoryDataset dataset = new DefaultCategoryDataset();

dataset.addValue(1.0, series1, category1);
dataset.addValue(4.0, series1, category2);
dataset.addValue(3.0, series1, category3);

// For Negative Value
// Put - (Minus) symbol before the value

dataset.addValue(5.0, series2, category1);
dataset.addValue(7.0, series2, category2);
dataset.addValue(6.0, series2, category3);

dataset.addValue(4.0, series3, category1);
dataset.addValue(3.0, series3, category2);
dataset.addValue(2.0, series3, category3);

return dataset;

private JFreeChart createChart(final CategoryDataset dataset)
// create the chart...
final JFreeChart chart = ChartFactory.createStackedBarChart3D
"Stacked Bar Chart", // chart title
"M o n t h s", // domain axis label
"Value in $", // range axis label
dataset, // data
PlotOrientation.VERTICAL, // orientation
true, // include legend
true, // tooltips?
false // URLs?

org.jfree.chart.plot.CategoryPlot categoryplot = chart.getCategoryPlot();
org.jfree.chart.renderer.category.BarRenderer barrenderer =

java.text.DecimalFormat decimalformat1 = new DecimalFormat("$##,###.00");
barrenderer.setItemLabelGenerator(new StandardCategoryItemLabelGenerator("{2}", decimalformat1));

// displaying Value on Each Bar

return chart;


public static void main(final String[] args) {

final First2 demo = new First2("Stacked Bar Chart");
