you can also use GNUPLOT for creating a gif file.

Gnuplot is a command-line driven interactive function plotting utility for UNIX, MSDOS, and VMS platforms. The software is copyrighted but freely distributed (i.e., you don't have to pay for it). I

Since this is a command line utility you can use it with almost any CGI scripting language (like PERL, PHP, ASP, C etc..)

you can get more info on GNUPLOT at ...

In case of servlets, create first frame.
Use graphics to generate pattern. Then
U have to use third party tool to generate gif files. such as Netcharts ,
Kawacharts.
       then pass this frame to this Netcharts or Kawacharts function. Result is GIF.
