This Example shows you how to create a box and whisker chart using JFreeChart. Code of the chart given below shows product value at different date .

In the code given below we have extended class ApplicationFrame to create a frame and also pass a string value to the constructor of ApplicationFrame class by using super keyword that will be name of the created frame.

Methods used in this example are described below:

pack(): This method invokes the layout manager.

centerFrameOnScreen(): This method is used for the position of the frame in the middle of the screen.

setVisible(): This method is used for display frame on the screen.

add(): This method is used for added data into DefaultBoxAndWhiskerXYDataset class object.

createBoxAndWhiskerChart(): This method is used to create box and whisker chart for given values. It takes title, domain axisa label, range axis label, dataset and legend as parameters.
