Is the build-in SVG charting not “sexy” enough for your managment?
Recently I came across two threads on the OTN Apex forum where they where discussing using a flash charting solution instead.
Denes Kubicek has put together a really nice “out of the box” solution, which can be used in your Apex application. Check out his demonstration application showing the possibilities of this flash charting solution in combination with Apex!
I’m sure with this charts you will get a “WOW that’s cool!” from your users and managers!
