Java charts recommendation needed

Hi all,

I need to use charts in my project (nothing fancy, in terms of graphics, beauty, and the like.) I looked a bit on the web and there are several packages available so I'm looking for a recommendation. Which one is good? How is jfreechart?

I'm not sure yet how will I display the charts -- in an applet or by exporting them to images. I think it would be the latter.

Thanks for your advise!

You can try JFreeChart.

Looks like it doesn't do nice pictures, though. Is it really only tracing, or can it do pie charts, etc.?

Sorry, I forgot to mention I'm working with Google's GWT and I need something that integrates with it. ofcgwt seems pretty cool. Anyone has experience with it? Or any other charts package that integrates with GWT?

Thanks,

In the past I have used http://code.google.com/p/charts4j/ with my GWT code.
You might also want to evaluate http://cewolf.sourceforge.net/new/index.html

Thanks Maneesh. In the meantime ofcgwt is doing the job for me pretty well, but I'll take a look at your recommendations as well.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
