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.

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.

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.
