Hi Chemi,

There are three Charting APIs within RTC:

(1) Jazz Flash charting engine
=> Client-side technology powered by Flash
=> Used by Work Item Statistics viewlet
=> No API. Strictly internal
=> No documentation

(2) BIRT charting engine
=> Server-side technology powered by Java/Eclipse
=> Used by Reports Web UI and Trend Reports viewlet
=> Public API
=> Documentation:

(3) DojoX charting engine
=> Client-side technology powered by JavaScript/CSS/HTML
=> Not used by any component at the moment
=> Public API
=> Documentation:

I think (3) would be the easiest to learn, the simplest to use and have the most
dynamic capabilities for viewlet requirements.
