Open Flash Chart
Open Flash Chart is an open source project(a Flash charting component) started by John Glazebrook to provide flash charts that can be embedded in web pages.It is fairly easy to setup and has classes written in PHP, Perl, Python, Java, Ruby on Rails, and .Net to connect to the Chart. You can create some really nice looking Bar Charts, Pie Charts, Area Charts and etc. It isn’t as flashy as any of these products, but that tends to be a good thing for charting components.

    This is really a good list. But in fact there’s plenty of other tools, such as FlyCharts (http://flycharts.net) or Fusion Charts Free. I like both of them
