I have a chart that displays a graph for share performance over the years. I want to make this interactive so that user can bring mouse over and click on highs and lows of the graph and see info about it displayed(such as exact date etc.)

Should I use applet for this?
what other technologies can I make appealing financial graphs with to embed into my JSP?

Flash would work, too.

Or you can use a library like cewolf/JFreeChart to generate images on the server with appropriate tooltips.
