I was recently looking for this question myself. As I found out how to do it in Jaspersoft Studio ver. 5.6 I thought I should share it here in case someone else looks for it.

In Jasperosft Studio, select the graph and select Show Properties from the context menu. In the Propertites Window, select the Chart Plot tab and then look for the Category Axis Section. Within the section lock for the Tick part and the "Category Axis Tick Label Rotation" setting.  Change the value to whatever you  need.
