Working with Charts

Jaspersoft Studio provides the ability to render charts inside a report to different ways. In a chart, it is possible to print the data coming from the main dataset or using a subdataset. This allows you to include many different charts in one document without using subreports.

JasperReports supports a wide variety of chart types: Area, Bar, Bar 3D, Bubble, Line, Pie, Pie 3D, Scatter Plot, Stacked Bar, Stacked Bar 3D, Time Series, XY Area, Stacked Area, XY Bar, XY Line, Meter, Thermometer, Candlestick and High Low Open Close charts. A MultiAxis chart can be used to aggregate multiple charts into a single one.
