Looking for Open Source Charting system? Here it is

After a bit of research and trying with different charting and reporting libraries in Java, C++ etc, I finally found a library which is not only powerful but extremely simple as well.

Open Flash Chart

I must tell you, I have started using it and it is damn good.

The best part being that it has so much of native support to PHP that anyone who loves coding in PHP should fall in love with this graphing library.

VIsit the above URL link and see some demos of how good it is 🙂

Did I tell u that it is totally free, even for commercial use? Simply Awesome. Go check it out.

The book gives you insights about effects, drag-n-drop, slideshows, applications, auto-completion, in-place editing and more. Complete code snippets and explanations.
