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).

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.
