[ Back ] ProServe Chart Samples
All these pages are created using KavaChart's tag library, but they could as easily have been created using scriptlets or servlets. Take a look at the JSP source code to the pages to see how they work. You will generally use a database or web service to obtain data for your charts, and will probably want to separate the chart style information from the rest of the page. See the tag-library and scriptlet examples for information about handling external styles, internationalization, and dynamic data handling.
These samples are organized into 4 collections:
All the charts share a core of functionality, covering data handling, hyperlinks, and general chart properties like color palettes and labeling.
Note: these charts all run in "demo mode" and display a notice at the bottom until you install a license key.
It's worth browsing through all the samples to see if there's a specialized chart that is uniquely suited for your needs. You can also browse the KavaChart HTML documentation from these pages, or download the KavaChart ProServe User's Guide in PDF format. The PDF documentation can be printed for a handy desktop reference.
You can also use the KavaChart Chart Wizard to prototype you chart designs without becoming familiar with KavaChart's style properties.
This collection includes the most used chart types, including most varieties of Bar, Pie, and Line charts.
The Basic collection demos include:
Like all ProServe charts, these charts support hyperlinking, tooltips dynamic data, and a wide range of style and data input features.
Feel free to experiment with these samples to see how chart properties can modify chart appearance.
KavaChart's Timeseries chart collection includes sophisticated timescale handling. Data that ranges over a period of time can be represented as areas, lines, strip charts, or bars, with clear, intuitive axis labelling that happens automatically.
Timeseries demos include:
