Glad you found the ChartCanvas class. The JavaFX support is missing from the 1.0.19 build because we're still supporting Java 1.6 and that doesn't include JavaFX. If you want the JavaFX support, there is a build script you can run under JDK 1.8. I would like to get two new JFreeChart releases done, one without JavaFX (v 1.0.20) and one with (v 1.5.0). I have been working on it, but struggling to find enough time.
