i need a charting component in my gwt webapp. i already played around with jfreechart but it's charts are ugly and not very easily customizable.

So i looked at birt (i am personally interested in working with birt). At start i only need the chart api. In my app the data (2d-5d -Tables) is delivered via html-tables and deserialized to pojos. this pojos are used to publish the tables as pdf and on webpage(gwt widget).

Now i want to create charts from this pojos. the charts are to be published as svg or png.
The documentation i found so far only describes the wysiwyg way via "reports" and "datasources" ...

Is their any documentation that starts in java code and shows how to deliver data in java code. I guess i have to implement some interface?
Or probably some of you can give me a kickstart.

Some background about the data: the data is statistical data about population. the tables delivered contain all kind of such data. the tables are multidemnsional. the most simple one looks like this:

       total   gender:m  gender:f
total    10        5         5


or:
      total   gender:m  gender:f
age1    3         2        1
age2    3         1        2
age3    4         2        2


their are also table with up to 3 dimensions on one axis (pivo tables).
I already created jfreecharts from this kind of data. i have to deliver the data as simple lists.
But how to make it with birt - i can't find where to start or what to google.

thx in advance

If you want to use the SWT chart renderer their are a lot of examples in
the source. I am attaching one project with several examples.

thx jason!

i read your webinar - a very good start. i also tried to import the examples into eclipse but got many build path error (adding each jar manually would be too much but the source will help).
I also installed "ChartSDK" in eclipse - but how to access those features ("Chart Context Sensitive Help", "Charet Source Feature") - in Eclipse' help i only found the birt chart "programmers reference" - the java doc?
