After numerical calculations, it is often desirable that relations of the numbers are displayed in charts, curves, histograms, contour plots, or any other graphical forms. In traditional languages like Fortran or C, we usually have to resort to some plotting tools available in the host system. In this scenario, not only do we have to learn the the graphics package, but also are concerned about the input/output formats between various tools. In contrast, Java comes with a rich supply of graphics classes. Results of numerical objects can be passed around and readily plotted by the graphics objects within the same application. Seamless integration of the two operations is another advantage of Java.
