Multiple XY Scatter Plot Maker Code Sample 

//create a datasource bean 
FileDataSource fileDataSource1 = new STATBEANS.FileDataSource(); 

//set the file name to be read 

//set the delimiter character used in the file 

//create a plot bean 
XYPlot xYPlot1 = new STATBEANS.XYPlot(); 

//set the columns for the x and y axes 
String xnames[]=new String[1]; 
String ynames[]=new String[2]; 

//set the point types and color 
String ptype[]={"triangle","square"}; 
Color pcolor[]={,}; 

//override the top title 
xYPlot1.setTopTitleLine1("Plot of Automobile Data"); 

//override the xaxis title 
xYPlot1.setXaxisTitle("weight in pounds"); 

//turn on point identifcation 

//add the plot to the application frame 

//make the plot a listener for changes in the FileDataSource bean 

//instruct the fileDataSource bean to read the file
