Hi Vik,

I don't know of a good visual testing approach for the charts. We have lots of JUnit tests for the non-visual classes in JFreeChart, but when it comes to ensuring that the rendered charts are accurate, we're relying on user feedback and our own observations.

If you find a good reliable approach for visual testing, I'm definitely interested in more information about it.
