Eclipse SWTChart

SWTChart is a powerful library to create charts and display data using SWT. It can be easily used in Java desktop applications. Only a few lines of code are necessary to create interactive and feature rich charts:

	public MyChart(Composite parent) {
		super(parent, SWT.NONE);
	private void initialize() {
		IChartSettings chartSettings = getChartSettings();
		List<IBarSeriesData> barSeriesDataList = new ArrayList<IBarSeriesData>();
		IBarSeriesData barSeriesData = new BarSeriesData(SeriesConverter.getSeriesXY(SeriesConverter.BAR_SERIES_1));

The source code is located here and can easily be cloned:
