Hi Experts,

I have a challenging requirement which should generate reports using the datas in domino. It should be platform independent. So I cannot export data to any excel sheets to generate the chart diagrams. If some one could share the code to implement it using XML or Servlets it would be really help ful.

Thanks in advance.

    If you are looking for XML, then any view can be generated as XML


    This will generate XML of the view, which can be parsed any where

    Use JFreeChart to plot your chart using Java. You do not need to export or anything. XML is an indirect way.

    Hello experts,
    Thank you for the response. I am yet to look into the XML version of response.
    As per using the JFreeChart how do I use my lotus domino as backend to fetch the required data. Please give in more details.

    Thank you.

    YOu need to read the document(s) (from views) and use them to generate the chart with Java code. The process will be very similar to the one used with OLE automation with Excel. The only difference would be that here your code will be in Java and you will be using the JFreeChart class library to generate the chart.

    See this page for an introduction and some links. YOu need to do some research with the subject to get started, becasue no ready to use code is available for Domino.
