Open Flash Chart downloads the data file and displays the chart. We also do pie charts. Why is that great? When the user downloads the web page, Open Flash Chart requests the chart data from the server. Add a bit of pizzazz to your bar charts! Is it complicated to set up? You will need to include the Open Flash Chart in your HTML, and you also need to provide the data file on the server. For a simple chart you would just drop the data.txt file on your website and point the Open Flash Chart to this URL.

But what we really want is dynamic data that is pulled from a database or calculated or something. To make this a bit easier there are PHP, Perl, Python and Java classes to write the data file for you. Why only these languages? Change the style of the charts. Get started! And it's really free?!

101 Ways to Make Money off Open Source

The list “101 Reasons Why Java is Better than .NET” was such a hit that even a vendor of .NET based software wrote that it was a source of “101 Product Ideas”. That motivated me to put together another list. Lately, I’ve been thinking of how to make money on open source Java. I asked a supposed expert, but he didn’t answer. So I decided to consult the Hive Mind by building a list.

So why 101, well just like with my previous list the reasons are the same. “101 reasons is actually a pretty ambitious number, however its always good to aim high first.
