Hi, Having moved from tw 6.2 where we had charts in coaches using the 'Report from list pattern' technique. Now in BPM 8 the charts do not work correctly. When I look at the chart type service the CDL net charts code has changed dramatically.
Anyone know what language this has been converted to and if there is any documentation anywhere?

This is an interesting question. My best understanding is that the reporting technology in v8 is still in somewhat of a degree of flux. The recording of data is still the same but the presentation of that data is still open. The solutions that I have heard are to use the Charting Coach Views (not supplied with the product but samples available on the BPM Wiki) to build your own Coaches to visualize the data.
I would say to avoid any CDL like functions as they are (opinion) no longer the strategic direction.

I've spent some time today looking into it and what has happened is when we migrated to BPM 8 our CDL script in the chart services has been re-written automatically. It now looks completely different.
Looking into this it is now using IBM ILOG JViews Charts. I've tweaked it to almost get the charts working as they were but still not fixed the drill down yet.
I don't think we'll use this going forward but we need to get this fixed for the migrated processes for now.
Not sure what charting we will use in future.
