Cool (and thanks to JCharts for the original code, made my job very easy 

I realised after submitting that it will need renaming if it is housed 
at JCharts since it is currently "org.apache.forest.plugin.Charts". I 
also realised that I forgot to test it without all the libs in the lib 
directory, some are already included in Forrest and so will not be 
required in the plugin zip file.

One other problem is that graph4 in the samples doesn't work, I've not 
tried to figure out why yet. Did this work in the original 
whiteboard/xml stuff? (I never tried running from there).

Finally, I think we should consider moving all the whiteboard/xml Java 
stuff into the plugin source, this will make building the plugin much 
easier and will keep all related files in one place. The plugin will 
also provide a nice example as to how the Apache Cocoon transformer 
should be used should someone want to use JCharts inside a Cocoon app.

I've already extended Apache Forrests plugin system to allow plugins to 
have Java source files and will be happy to merge the plugin and 
whiteboard/xml stuff for you.
