Hi all,
I am developing an application which will draw graph for conference hall booking. It will be simillar to a gantt chart with little variance.

The image will look like this

Please tell me which API will be convenient to use. Specially I want to draw fragmented lines( to show hall was booked between 1 pm to 2 pm and 3 pm to 4 pm).
Can it be done using gantt chart or timeseries chart in JFreeChart.

For creating charts in Java you have to use awt which will be too hard to
draw chart.

The easy would be use a third party tool like Jfreechart.

best regards,

Back to Java , again.

JFreeChart is a good library, kind of the standard charting package for Java. Other options are JFreeChart2D and OpenChart.
