With rrdtool xport you can create an xml representation of your
data which should (?) be comprehensible by java reporting tools.

xport could be enhanced to spit out JSON format to enable simple
interop with json based tools ... also maybe a native XPORT format
would be nice so that frontends can easily convert the data without
having to parse xml first ...
