I thought I would let interested peoples know that I have had some success using the native JavaFX charting stuff in Java 8 with MASON.    You no longer need to have JFreeChart to build charts, although I haven't explored any interactivity modality with JavaFX, if it exists.
For the moment, this is just pumping data through a custom time series generator at the end of a run rather than using the MASON GUI.    JFreeChart is more mature, has more features, and has some graph interactivity out of the box (like NetLogo).

Just letting everyone know of a recent important commit I posted to MASON out on SVN.  MASON now has a class called sim.display.ChartUtilities which is designed to make it easy to set up charts and graphs as displays in your model.  This is a long-requested item and it’s well overdue.  The very last section of the Manual has also been added which discusses how to use ChartUtilities.  The class hasn’t been tested much though: please let me know what you think.
