Javaee Angularjs Bootstrap Howto Charts With D3js

By Damien · 2015-11-08 · angularjs java javascript bootstrap

alt text

Here simple use cases: a static Bar chart and a dynamic Line chart. It’s build with d3js and nvd3 for angularjs integration and java jersey for backend datas.

Note: for more advanced use cases, you’ll need to create your own angularjs directive working directly with d3js.

Demo

Here the two uses cases: bar charts and line charts.

There is a tooltip for each datas in charts.

alt text

There are two instances of Line chart:

  • static (unique update at loading time)
  • dynamic (refreshing every second)

alt text

Caution: for each refresh you’ll ended with a backend request. Pay attention to performance and load (bigger refresh interval, or replace only with new datas)

alt text

Java Data back-end response (build with Jersey JAX-RS impl).
