I am looking for a library that can handle the display of graphs. I just need simple graphs with labeling and maybe a a "tooltip" if I hover over a certain point on the graph. I don't need diagrams or charts. Is Birt the right tool for me? And is there a difference between Birt and Birt designer?
I tried to figure it out myself, but I can't get it running.
First of all, I can't find the link with which I can download v4.2. Here http://wiki.eclipse.org/BIRT_Update_Site_URL only 3.7 is mentioned.
Also I can't find any good documentation on how to get startet. http://www.eclipse.org/articles/article.php?file=Article-BIRTChartEngine/index.html helps a little, but there is no complete example code. And when I try to put some of the basic classes of com.ibm.examples.chart.zip in my own project it doen't work either, because this:
Access restriction: The method setBackground(Fill) from the type Block is not accessible due to restriction on required library E:\eclipse42\plugins\org.eclipse.birt.chart.engine_3.7.2.v20120213.jar
Actually I wanted to use JFreeChart, but I heard that the SWT-Connection is not beeing developed any further.
