Data Visualisation

Hi everybody!

I hope this is the right place for my question. It´s the first time in this forum for me, so please excuse me if I´m doing something wrong.

For my Bachelor-Thesis i need a way to visualize time-based data in a graph or diagram. It should also be possible to show certain events in the graph. So I´m looking for a kind of timeline diagam where I can compare 2 or more different data-sets simultaneously.
The goal of my thesis is to create a webinterface in which I can choose between some sets of data (historical and/or current), then the data will be fetched from a database and eventually be shown in a timeline diagram. When I put the mouse over the diagram it should show a kind of toolip with the "event" that happened at the time I am pointing to (the information to this should also be in the database).

Do you have any suggestions for me? What should I search for (or where)? How can I prepare best for this topic?
I startet learning Java a month ago so my knowledge and my programming experience is quite basic.

Thanks in advance!

If I may strut my own stuff, check out the cewolf library (link is in my signature). Download the "cewolfexample" web app, and drop it into a servlet container of your choice (like Tomcat). Then look at the various pages to see what it can do, and whether that comes close to what you're looking for.
