Hi Experts,

I am drawing events timeline.
I was thinking of using some sort of graph that had events as XY  plot points and event date as X axes.
Would you please let me know if you have any better suggestion, or if you any method in SWING or AW class that can be used for drawing graphs/ charts.
DO you also know any interactive graph method outside SWING or AWT ?
becuz I initially was looking for something that had interactive point, so that user can click on each point on graph and be able to edit the details of events.

Thank you

I've already checked all of their graphs, none of them look good for timeline .
what I am mainly looking for is some kind of 2D XY graph!
