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)
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.
As stated in Ext-GWT web site:
So your question should be: "why you need to add support for charts in a library that is already supporting them?".
Converging into HighCharts-GXT
Now these two worlds converge in HighCharts-GXT.
