JFreeChart no source attached

Hi Experts,

I am trying to create a chart from a dataset.

Everything is all right, I have no error but when I run the program I have a nullpointer exception no source attached.

I think the problem is with my class path.

I downloaded JFreeChart from SourceForge and I put the jar files into my jre directory.

Is it all I have to do or where do I put the source files  jfreechart-1.0.2/source/org/jfree.

Put it in the /ext directory rather.

That would be C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_09\lib\ext  for me.

Sorry the jar files have been put exactly there jre1.5.0_09\lib\ext.

Do I have to include the folder  jfreechart-1.0.2/source/org/jfree also ?

No, on second thoughts, I think you make a wrong call from your application.
Otherwise you would not have a nullpointer exception.

Here is the exact error message

Exception in tread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
      at org.jfree.data.xy.DefaultHighLowDataset.getX(DefaultHighLowDataset.java:131)
     etc....

If I click on the error here is the explanation :
     Source not found
     The jar file jfreechart-1.0.2.jar has no source attachment.
     you can attach the source by clicking Attach Source below

Can you post the code fragment for your main method?

No source attached: means you don't have the sources of Freechart available.

That's not the error.

I run the program many times and found out where the bug is.

The bug happens when the program reaches this block :


final JFreeChart chart = ChartFactory.createHighLowChart("High-Low-Open-Close Demo","Time", "Value",dataset, true);

final DateAxis axis = (DateAxis) chart.getXYPlot().getDomainAxis();
axis.setTickMarkPosition(DateTickMarkPosition.MIDDLE);
final ChartPanel chartPanel = new ChartPanel(chart);
chartPanel.setPreferredSize(new java.awt.Dimension(500, 270));
setContentPane(chartPanel);

>>>final JFreeChart chart = ChartFactory.createHighLowChart("High-Low-Open-Close Demo","Time", "Value",dataset, true);

>>>final DateAxis axis = (DateAxis) chart.getXYPlot().getDomainAxis();
>>>axis.setTickMarkPosition(DateTickMarkPosition.MIDDLE);
>>>final ChartPanel chartPanel = new ChartPanel(chart);
>>>chartPanel.setPreferredSize(new java.awt.Dimension(500, 270));
>>>setContentPane(chartPanel);    

Can you give me the line numbers, so we know which line exactly is causing the exception.

If I delete the following lines the program runs normally without any problems but as you know I have only the frame with no chart.

The problem starts with line final JFreeChart = .....................................................................

>>>final JFreeChart chart = ChartFactory.createHighLowChart("High-Low-Open-Close Demo","Time", "Value",dataset, true);

>>>final DateAxis axis = (DateAxis) chart.getXYPlot().getDomainAxis();
>>>axis.setTickMarkPosition(DateTickMarkPosition.MIDDLE);
>>>final ChartPanel chartPanel = new ChartPanel(chart);
>>>chartPanel.setPreferredSize(new java.awt.Dimension(500, 270));
>>>setContentPane(chartPanel);

When I add this line :

final JFreeChart chart = ChartFactory.createHighLowChart("High-Low-Open-Close Demo","Time", "Value",dataset, true);

Here is the result :

I think it has something to do with my dataset.

Maybe my dataset is null. I am new to JFreeChart and I am not sure about creating my dataset

I have solved my problem.


Now I would like to allocate my points. Fortunately I have another question.

I got my chart but I have to resize my Y axis to make it clearer. How do I do that ?



Thank you
