I'm a big fan of Gantt charts as a project management and planning tool. I've looked around for open source Gantt chart generation tools, and the one I like the most, concept-wise, is GanttProject.
I'm still working through some problems getting some features to work, like saving HTML or JPG exports on the Java WebStart version, and in resolving some java.util.ResourceBundle.throwMissingResourceException errors when running a version of the program I compiled myself.
When I am able to get this tool to successfully export HTML and JPG Gantt charts, I would rate it highly. If they can incorporate a feature to allow generation of PERT charts from the Gantt data, that would be very useful.
