Hi Joachim,

Looking into WAFileLibrary and WAFileHandler won't help a lot: you get easily lost. They are great for serving static files, and do some buffering and such.

In Seaside 3.x the answer is more simple. Your code looks fine, the method you want to make looks something like:

	self requestContext respond: [ :response |
			document: self calculateChart ]
