JFreeChart,
but I think you'll have to pay to get the docs.
Using the library is free. You may find some basic tutorials around.

Another option is JChart2D, also on Sourceforge.

What do you mean by "translate the document into any chart" - kind of like a screenshot, so that you have an image that looks like the document? What kind of document is this?

If you want to use JFreeChart, then there is not much documentation out there besides the javadocs. The author offers documentation and example source code for a charge (around $40, if I remember correctly).

Other charting packages (like jchart2d) don't offer as much functionality, but have more documentation available for free.
