Creating custom shaped graph in J2SE

Hi
I need a Timeline Graph with a shape that I can't find in any of existing graph libraries.
So I'm going to make it by myself.
Where should I start?
Should I start by writing in Graphics2D? or there is other tool for this kind of thing?

Thanks

How would this graph look like? You specifically want a graph, not a chart of some kind?

Ah, ok. I'm not aware of an existing library that creates something like this, so you may indeed have to write it yourself.

Yes; But where is the start point? Graphics2D on a JPanel? or these kind of things are done in a different way?
