View Full Version : Fusion Charts

I'm an EE currently working for a startup company aiming to create a combined hardware / software platform for the medical industry. I have been drawn to GWT and to GXT because of my existing familiarity with Java and because of the highly polished look and feel that this library offers.

I have already done some prototyping with GXT, and am becoming familar with the patterns used.

Here's the thing: we are moving towards using Fusion Charts for visualization. I am toying with the idea of creating some components to integrate GXT and the Fusion Charts package in a similar way that GXT and OFC2 are already integrated. I realise this will be no small task but the scope of our project easily justifies it. If we go ahead with this I will open source all the code.

I wanted to get the feel from the community on several things

Has anybody already attempted this? (I am aware of gwt-fusioncharts on Google Code)
Is this sane thing for me to attempt on my own? I'm not really a software engineer but I'm fairly competent at Java, and I've been using GWT for around half a year now. I'm also pretty familiar with Flash / JS in general as I did that kind of thing for work during my degree
If anybody is doing or thinking about the same thing, would you like to share info / collaborate?
Does anyone have any clue wtf is going on with the gwt-fusioncharts project or has made use of its code? There's no docs and I get the feeling the author thinks that it's beneath him to produce some (if you're reading this: no offense!)

Please post here or contact me on the address in the profile, thanks!

For the record:

Hi Jason,

Thanks for your interest in integrating FusionCharts with GWT. I'm Pallav Nadhani - co-founder of FusionCharts team.

While we do not have any GWT code from our in-house team, there is the gwt-fusioncharts project that you've already seen. I agree that the author has not contributed/exnteded it in some time now. However, we would be glad to help you in every way that we can, if you wish to create another GWT library for either FusionCharts v3 or FusionCharts Free. I'm not sure if you're aware, but FusionCharts Free is now open source (dual licensed under GPL and MIT).

You may please contact me directly, or through this fourm; and I'll make sure you get all possible help from my team.
