J2me ChartComponent - ver 1.5.2

ChartComponent is a MIDP2.0 charting component with basic functionalities for showing charts on embedded devices. It currently implements the following charts:
  1. Line
  2. Horizontal bars
  3. Vertical bars
  4. Pie charts (experimental)
Also a very simple 'legenda' is implemented.
Though basic and far from being complete, it's being already used in production environments.
The usage is very straightforward and a test midlet suite with source code is downloadable here.


The screenshots below show different charts on different devices.

on a Palm Tungsten E
with IBM J9 VM
on a Nokia 6600


Component usage is really trivial. Javadoc included with the component download and the source code of the test midlet suite is all you need to get started with ChartComponent.

Release 1.5 adds showing values for pie charts and also moves the drawing functions outside of the paint method, so that it is possible to draw directly on Image objects instead of having the chart items shown on the Screen (see drawPie and drawChart methods). Within the code included in the ChartComponentTest midlet suite you'll see an example of this technique (PieChartTestImage midlet).

Release 1.5.2 fixes some bugs related to setting and visualizing the minimum value on a LineChart plus a few other minor bugs. 

A first article/tutorial on how to use the library is available here.
