HighCharts-GXT/GWT Project The official HighCharts-GWT/GXT adapters blog



This project will be discontinued. Now the Sencha GXT charts are themselves based on JS (that was the original intention of these adapters).

Now supporting Gxt4.x and Highcharts 4.x

The new sources and releases will be found at: https://github.com/strollo/highcharts-gxt

The new release supporting both Gxt4 and Highcharts4 has been released in:




HighCharts-G*t consists of a library for adapting Highcharts-JS charts inside:

  • GWT framework (it is the HighCharts-GwT library)
  • Ext-GWT (Gxt) framework (it is the HighCharts-GxT library)

About Highcharts-JS

Highcharts-JS is a powerful and high flexible JavaScript based library for rendering charts inside web pages. More details can be found at Highcharts-JS web site.

It supports (among other features):

  • a multitude of chart types (e.g. histograms, pies, lines, scatter charts, etc.) that can be easily mixed together;
  • the export to most common vectorial and raster formats (PDF, SVG, JPEG, PNG);
  • datetime axis. Provides facilities for managing date ranges and natively support TimeSeries charts;
  • dynamic manipulation of charts. You can add, remove and modify series, axes or points at run-time in a fast and painless way.

About Ext-GWT

As stated in Ext-GWT web site:

If you're a Java developer who builds enterprise applications for the web, you may know about Google Web Toolkit (GWT). GWT allows you to write in Java, and then compile your code into highly-optimized cross-browser JavaScript. Sencha Ext GWT takes GWT to the next level, giving you high-performance widgets, feature-rich templates and layouts, advanced charting, data loaders and stores, and accessibility, and much more.

So your question should be: "why you need to add support for charts in a library that is already supporting them?".

Simple: "because Ext-GWT chart layer is based upon Open Flash Chart. What my library provides is the integration of JavaScript based charts inside Ext-GWT."
