Hello team
I have a situation.

I would like to implement a java application which creates graphical report as in excel or MS project.

I have done following so far.
JSP page retrieves data from access database
i can download that data into excel - probably create graphical report from excel

Can somebody please advise me or give me some idean as to what i need to do so that i can get the graphical report in JSP is self.

What i would like to do is: i would like to have a buttona and user click on it and it creates a graphical report for them.

any kind of advise / suggestion is welcome.

thank in advance..
regards,

Hi Rashmi,

I have done this in my application with the same requirement. I used an Open Source third party software to get the report in a Graphical manner. The name of that tool is JFree Chart.You can find the JFree Chart API at the following location.

http://www.jfree.org/jfreechart/api/javadoc/index.html?org/jfree/chart/plot/package-tree.html

Check with that site and let me know if you have any queries.

I do not know what kind of reports are you planning to generate.But jFreecharts are very good in generating chart/graphs.
