Plotting a 2D sine graph

In this recipe, we will use a free Java graph library named GRAphing Library (GRAL) to plot a 2D sine graph. On many occasions, sine graphs can be particularly useful for data scientists since they are a trigonometric graph that can be used to model fluctuations in data (for example, using temperature data to create a model that predicts the times during the year that a location would be pleasant to visit).

Getting ready

  1. To use GRAL in your project, you need to download the GRAL JAR file and include it in your project as an external Java library. To download the Jar file, go to http://trac.erichseifert.de/gral/wiki/Download  and download GRAL JAR file version 0.10 from the legacy version section. The file that you are going ...
