JSP doesn't ship with anything for building charts or reports but there are plenty of libraries out there.

JasperReports is the first one that comes to mind.

I think JasperReports is more for generating reports, not charts. One of the common charting libraries may have the right kind of chart; check out JFreeReport and JChart2D (both on SourceForge).

..only i wonder if you can deploy your application which incorporates either of the above in aproduction server.Arnt there any licensing/purchasing issues ??..also would like to know if any of our fellow ranchers came accross any issues related to performance of these charts and graphs..

Both JChart2D and JFreeChart are licensed under the LGPL, so I'm not sure what license/purchase issues you have in mind.

If performance is a problem depends on the concurrency that you encounter in your web app. Image generation does take a bit of CPU time, so if 100 users request charts simultaneously, there will probably be a delay.
