    Hey, I just want to drop a “Thank You”. Did you ever think about using Flattr? I would press the flattr button on every update 😉

    I am absolutely struggling with this.

    I am pretty new to Struts.

    I have a table in a database which i want to turn into a graph.
    To make things easier I have been able to turn the table data into a json object in a method within the file.

    I am absolutely struggling to turn this data into a bar chart using the example give. This is my last resort. can you help?

    Just a simple step by step example, what is required in the and the jsp with just one chart. I have all the plugin in the maven repo. I am just really struggling to get this working.

    Can you help?
