Fancy Charts for Wicket Applications: Introducing wicket-charts

Charts are a great way to visualize data. They are pleasing to the eye and dumb down the complexity of the data so that even managers understand it. Highcharts (http://www.highcharts.com) is a javascript library that uses HTML5 SVG to create such charts in an easy-to-use way. 

Introducing wicket-charts
Since I need charts in my current Wicket project, I decided to roll a small java library as an abstraction of the Highcharts javascript library. wicket-charts provides Java classes to configure a chart and some Wicket-specific classes to enable a developer to display charts in his Wicket pages.
