GWT Highcharts

A comprehensive API enabling the use of Highcharts within a GWT application.

What is it?

GWT Highcharts is a freely available open source library that provides an elegant and feature complete approach for including Highcharts and Highstock visualizations within a GWT application using pure Java code (including GWT widget libraries, such as SmartGWT or Ext GWT.)

Highcharts is a charting library written in pure JavaScript, offering intuitive, interactive charts to your web site or web application. Highcharts currently supports line, spline, area, areaspline, column, bar, pie and scatter chart types.

Highstock lets you create stock or general timeline charts in pure JavaScript, including sophisticated navigation options like a small navigator series, preset date ranges, date picker, scrolling and panning.

Key Features:

Compatible It works in all modern browsers including the iPhone/iPad and Internet Explorer from version 6. Standard browsers use SVG for the graphics rendering. In legacy Internet Explorer graphics are drawn using VML.
Pure Java The entire set of capabilities of the Highcharts API is available via GWT powered Java methods, including clean interfaces for the various runtime callbacks (no need to write any JavaScript).
No Flash Highcharts is solely based on native browser technologies and doesn't require client side plugins like Flash or Java, also allowing the charts to run without modification on modern mobile devices.
Clean Syntax The API is built using chainable methods that allow you to manage the configuration options of the chart using syntax that is nearly as tight as JSON.
Dynamic Through a full API you can add, remove and modify series and points or modify axes at any time after chart creation. Numerous events supply hooks for programming against the chart. In combination with GWT remoting or comet APIs, this allows for solutions like live charts constantly updating with values from the server, user supplied data and more.
Documented Every class and method of the API is thoroughly documented, including numerous code and syntax examples throughout.
Examples The showcase application provides thorough examples of dozens of different chart types, and each example includes a convenient "View Source" button that will allow you to see the code behind each.
