Java Specific Features
Pure Java Implementation
ChartDirector for Java is a ChartDirector edition written in pure Java. It runs on any
system with Java SE 6 or above.
JSP and Servlet Support
One of the most common usage of Java is for JSP or Servlet based web applications.
ChartDirector for Java includes special server side controls and browser side
controls to support JSP and Servlet applications.
JSP Chart Viewer
The JSP Chart Viewer works on the server side. It generates HTML to display the
chart and to support for user interactions such as tooltips, track cursors, and
zooming and scrolling. It also handles AJAX chart update, stream chart updates
as well as downloading PDF reports.
It provides the user interface for user interactions with the chart on the browser
Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)
ChartDirector can generate charts in Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), in addition to
PNG, JPG and GIF. SVG ensures the chart remains sharp and crisp in responsive web
design, in which the chart can resize to fit different user devices.
Comprehensive JSP Sample Code
The ChartDirector distribution includes hundreds of JSP examples demonstrating various
chart types and user interactions.
Distributed as a WAR (Web Application Archive)
ChartDirector for Java is distributed as a WAR (Web Application Archive). (A WAR is
the same as a zip file but with a particular directory structure.) You can deploy the
WAR, which includes the fully functional ChartDirector library, sample code, and
documentation, to a JSP server to begin testing ChartDirector.
