Building Business Intelligence applications is always require the lot of effort and time. As all already might aware of that the Charting applications comes under the business intelligence applications.
There are many number of java charting frame works are available in the market. Some of them might be opensource, some of them are freeware and others might be premium based frameworks. As per my opinion, implementing the charting applications using java based frameworks takes lot of time and bringing good look and feel is night mare to developers.
In this post, I am planning to put some points about the Java script based charting libraries. If you feel interesting about this, just learn more details in the particular websites.
- Chart.js:It is a easy, object oriented client side graphs for designers and developers. Its a Canvas based charts. It is Free under MIT license. The charts are drawn using Canvas and hence cannot offer any interactivity. 6 chart types are available.
- jqPlot: It is a Versatile and Expandable jQuery Plotting Plugin and renders in HTML5 charts using Canvas. Ability to provide the 25+ chart types in 2D. Maps and 3D charts not supported. It can be used under GPL and MIT licences. Supports Quintile Pyramid Charts, Engel & Lorenz Curves, Multi-level pie, Block plots.
Understanding of complete libraries helps us in taking a decision before designing the applications. Lets be let me know your inputs on this post.
