Try using a Hotspot framework, there is a java version avaiable here:

http://www.rolemodelsoftware.com/drawlets/index.php

With a framework like this, all the actual diagramming functionality is already provided, and will allow you to customise it to your needs. All you ned to do is tailor it to your exact specifications. Note that I havent used this frameowrk in particular. When I was at Uni we used a similar framework although I cant remember what it was called. You might be able to find more info here: http://www.cis.strath.ac.uk/.

Can you explain your requirements more in detail? It looks like some UML tool will suit your needs better.

(and there are plenty of UML tools built in Java so effectively you can say that Java is doing it)

do you know anything for free commerical use? For Hotspot, we need to pay for license. Our boss is not willing to pay for any license free as java is a open source community.

mayankeagle - Not UML tool.
For example, our JSP page will contain a workflow diagram image, where is clicked, it generates a workflow diagram shown in applet.

Well, I think there should be some free, open source ones, like these:

I'm not sure if a JFreeChart kind of thing will be enough for you: http://www.jfree.org/jfreechart/ 

There are some mentioned here as well: http://dmoz.org/Computers/Programming/Languages/Java/Class_Libraries/Graphics/
