Packages that were either suggested or I found from links from
suggested packages were:

JFreeChart - http://www.jfree.org/jfreechart/
Java Chart Construction Kit (JCCKit) - http://jcckit.sourceforge.net/
JOpenChart Java Library - http://jopenchart.sourceforge.net/
Chart2D - http://chart2d.sourceforge.net/
ThunderGraph -
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=38125
Scientific Graphics Toolkit - http://www.epic.noaa.gov/java/sgt/
Big Faceless Java Graph library -
http://big.faceless.org/products/graph/

I am tending to think I will go with JFreeChart, but I would be very
grateful
to hear from anyone who has used any of the above for some first hand
experience of what they are like to use.

Thanks very much,

Luke Whitaker.

Hi Luke,

I used JFreeChart for lots of scientific visualization and
i still use it now because it's simple and efficient enough to make
quite complex graphs. U should see the main class
in the Api doc named ChartFactory which provides
static methods to build all kind of charts; Then put that chart in a
ChartPanel which is a.... JPanel

;-)
