Bullet Graph - RIA + JavaFX !

Finally we are able to finish one more article on Data Representation. My special thanks to Stephen Few who has written the concept of Bullet Graph. An awesome way to represent lot of data in one screen. Basically used on Executive Dashboard to compare between predicted value and actual done.

In terms of Animation, this is different in comparison with other Data Rep. Articles. Here the data loading is sequential in nature. Actually if someone is making it for presentation purpose, the best way is to show the animation on Key hit, very similar to what we do in ODP or PPT presentations.Some small code of AppletExtension is also there, which will show you the power of JavaFX API. When you drag this applet out of Browser, you will not see the custom close button.

Feel free to comment or add anything you want in this.

Good one man. I didnt get the AppletExtension part , is it to implment the close button ?
This applicable only for Bullet Graph ?

thanks Raghu ! In this example, we did it because when it was coming out of the browser, the application has a close button which will not close the application, because in browser FX.exit() will not work. There is a way to close the application by closing that stage but here what we did is we vanished the close button when out of browser and provided the defaultCloseButton = yes.
