Beginner Help

Post by brenz » Tue May 18, 2021 1:15 pm

Hi all

I am trying to install and use JFreeChart on Netbeans.
I am new to this and java, still a beginner.

Basically, how do I actually install it.
All the guides are over 10 years old, and the file structure they show is different to how it is now, the lib folder they speak of doesn't have what it does now.
So, in the most basic terms, like I am a child, how do you install and use JFreeChart in Netbeans?

Thank you

NetBeans has really good Maven integration, so I would learn the basics of Maven and go from there.

This post walks through the steps of creating a Maven project with JFreeChart:

I would recommend to get that working via the command line then, when you are done, fire up NetBeans and open the pom.xml file - this will open the project with dependencies resolved and should just work out-of-the-box.
