Do you just want to use the BIRT chart engine or do you want to use the
BIRT report designer to design charts?

I have no knowledge of BIRT chart engine or BIRT Report designer.
I like to start which BIRT component is free to plug in into my Eclipse to try it out? This would enable to see whether or not the BIRT component is feasible for my development/testing/delivery of Charts via Eclipse.
As well as the BIRT tutorial/information/code examples how to create pie, line and bar charts.
I forgot to include that the output will be in pdf contain charts would be good. As well as jpeg graphical file (for web page).
Here is simple concept that I am trying to achive:
1. Run Eclipse via command prompt
2. Generate reports
3. Output the reports to pdf to a shared network folder (for distrubition purposes)
4. Publish the reports to jpeg files to the web server (team's montly "report tracking" website).
The concept will be automated every few hours without user intervention.
All of BIRT is free. You can run the chart engine by its self or
through the BIRT desginer. If you use the BIRT designer its all
graphical and build data sets for your chart are very easy. To run the
report after they are created you can 1) use the WebViewer j2ee app 2)
use the api and write your own code 3) use the ReportRunner class that
is called in the genReport.bat (or .sh) file in the ReportEngine
directory of the runtime download.
To build the report with the chart take a look at these screen casts
The first one is big and will take some time to start playing.
