Hi All,
Thanks in advance.
In my task i have to create a line graph,i have two sets of numeric values say speed and distance , and i want draw a graph depending upon the the values.I need this graph generation at dynamic time means depending upon the values set choosen the graph should redraw.
Is it possible to draw a graph without AWT/Applets?
Please give me some example code.

You can go for an Open Source third party tool called JFree Charts. Go to this URL for more info.

Packages like JFreeChart or JChart2D can do this (both are linked here). If this is in a JSP page, then the cewolf tag library might also help.

Thanks for your reply.
But i have a doubt and tested on UNIX websphere server JFree charts are not working.
Please tell me whether i need to take any extra cautions before working on unix websphere.
I tested Tomcat windows then working fine.

Thanks a lot
