The Eclipse Chart Engine is a complete charting library fully integrated into BIRT Reporting. The charting package is also available as a standalone library and includes a chart builder UI, a rich EMF chart model and a chart engine API. This tutorial will cover the following topics:
• Creation of the chart xml model using the chart builder in standalone mode
• Reading/Writing the chart xml model
• Modifying the chart model programmatically
• Binding data to the chart before execution
• Integrating the chart rendering process in a JSP or desktop application (SWT/Swing)
• Calling the Chart Builder from your RCP application
Each step will be demonstrated through code and in-depth explanations regarding the Chart APIs and examples for each scenario will be provided. This tutorial is dedicated to API developers embedding BIRT Charts in their applications.
