Probability Statistics Calculator Code Sample

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

//set the file name to be read 

//create a chart bean 
ProbabilityPlot probabilityplot1 = new STATBEANS.ProbabilityPlot(); 

//set the column to be plotted 

//define the plot type 

//show the plot 

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

//instruct the fileDataSource bean to read the file
