JSF ChartCreator – Resurrection
May 10, 2007 1 Comment
It’s been a while since I’ve stopped maintaining JSF ChartCreator but after seeing the 2000+ downloads for the previous version, I’ve decided to prepare a comeback:) This version is 1.2.0-M1 and contains many new features, several bugfixes and better documentation.
* Provided an optional configuration to switch between a servlet and a phaselistener as the generator of the charts. This is done so because, a phaselistener can be used in a portlet environment and a servlet can be used when some other lib’s phaselistener(like Ajax4JSF) prevents chart’s phaselistener from getting called.
* Added a new child component called chartAxis that can be used to customize a single axis.
* Created a renderer for the chart component so users can override it if they want.
* Clickable chart sections; Previous version was supporting custom image maps but this new feature generates automatic image maps for each chart section and users can attach events to be processed when for example a bar is clicked for a bar chart.
* Several bug fixes.

UPDATE: M1 release has an ugly jvm compatibility issue and was only working with java6, I’ve made a quick fix and made a M2 release that’s compatible with java 1.4+.
