plot and java

i don't like the plot style of a function, some points or an array, especially in 3D in java.
so i checked Java3D and i didn't like it either.

Does anyone know if its possible to implement in a java application a way to plot some stuff with another program?
programs like matlab or mathematica (GREAT plots).

I thought maybe i can connect java with another program so i can get better plots.

can i do that?

What do you mean by "the plot style"? Java doesn't have built-in plotting routines, so you must be using some external API already ... ?

thanks for your fast reply!

yes, its my mistake. i checked some packages and i didn't like em (like java3d).
so i want some suggestions(maybe on previous experience) for plotting in java.

i am not using some external api at the moment.

Take a look at JFreeChart. I haven't used it myself, but it's commonly suggested/recommended


luck, db

Besides JFreeChart, other options are http://approximatrix.com/products/openchart2/ and http://jchart2d.sourceforge.net/.
