	chartOptions.getChart().setType(ChartType.BAR);
	chartOptions.getTitle().setText("Historic World Population by Region");
	chartOptions.getSubtitle().setText("Source: Wikipedia.org");

	XAxis xAxis = new XAxis();
	xAxis.setCategories(Arrays.asList("Africa", "America", "Asia", "Europe", "Oceania"));
	xAxis.getTitle().setText(null);
	chartOptions.getXAxis().add(xAxis);

	YAxis yAxis = new YAxis();
	yAxis.setMin(0).getTitle().setText("Population (millions)").setAlign(TitleAlign.HIGH);
	yAxis.getLabels().setOverflow(LabelsOverflow.JUSTIFY);
	chartOptions.getYAxis().add(yAxis);

	chartOptions.getTooltip().setValueSuffix(" millions");
	chartOptions.getPlotOptions().getBar().getDataLabels().setEnabled(true);
	chartOptions.getCredits().setEnabled(false);

	chartOptions.getLegend().setLayout(Layout.VERTICAL).setAlign(HorizontalAlign.RIGHT)
		.setVerticalAlign(VerticalAlign.TOP).setX(-40).setY(80).setFloating(true)
		.setBorderWidth(1).setShadow(true)
		.getBackgroundColor().setColorValue("((Highcharts.theme && Highcharts.theme.legendBackgroundColor) || '#FFFFFF')");
		
	SeriesBar seriesBar = new SeriesBar();
	seriesBar.setName("Year 1800");
	seriesBar.setDataAsArrayNumber(Arrays.asList(107, 31, 635, 203, 2));
	chartOptions.getSeries().add(seriesBar);
		
	seriesBar = new SeriesBar();
	seriesBar.setName("Year 1900");
	seriesBar.setDataAsArrayNumber(Arrays.asList(133, 156, 947, 408, 6));
	chartOptions.getSeries().add(seriesBar);
		
	seriesBar = new SeriesBar();
	seriesBar.setName("Year 2000");
	seriesBar.setDataAsArrayNumber(Arrays.asList(814, 841, 3714, 727, 31));
	chartOptions.getSeries().add(seriesBar);
		
	seriesBar = new SeriesBar();
	seriesBar.setName("Year 2016");
	seriesBar.setDataAsArrayNumber(Arrays.asList(1216, 1001, 4436, 738, 40));
	chartOptions.getSeries().add(seriesBar);
