Just Starting Out with Jcommon and Jfreechart . .

Post by imamicPH » Thu Oct 12, 2006 6:03 pm

hi everyone,

I'm new to Jfree. I've used Java to test some trading strategies using text files of old prices etc.

I would like to make custom charts and thought Jfree would help a lot. I'm limited by excel.

Two things:

1. How do I go about installing Jcommon and JfreeCharts? Isn't there a certain folder I need to install jcommon in?

2. How do the charts compare to those made in Excel?

Download the JFreeChart installation documentation, it should help get you started:

https://sourceforge.net/project/showfil ... e_id=13145

Running the demo app included in the JFreeChart distribution should give you a good overview of the type of charts that JFreeChart can produce. I haven't used Excel in many years, so I can't tell you how they compare.

Hey that's exactly what I was looking for. Thank you very much.

And I'm sure It's been said but a impressive project.
