Configuring a New Chart Type Using jqPlot Library

I have been searching through the Siebel Bookshelf and found in “Configuring Siebel Open UI” Chapter 5 in the section “Configuring a New Chart Type Using jqPlot Library” on page 5-57. The Book gives 6 steps to configure a new Chart Type. I have read though these instructions and lookup the sections that they refer to and I would like to get additional guidance from Siebel by raising an SR’s for the following questions:

• Does Oracle support have a step by step example of accomplishing this?
• Step 2 refers to creating a Plug-in Wrapper. I have read 4-34 plus everything in this book on creating a plug-in wrapper. I have also found the JavaScript file OOB plug-in Wrapper and it is 2,189 lines of JavaScript code. I would like additional guidance on creating a plug-in wrapper.
• Step 4 refers to chainging the plug wrapper to include control.GetApplet().GetPModel().Get("Type") === "Bubble". From what I can tell “Bubble” is a chart type found in the jqPlot JavaScript Library. Why does Bookshelf specifically recommend setting this to “Bubble”?
• I need additional guidance on how to implement step 5.
• Step 6 says that Business Service “Object Manager Charts” Method “BuildChartPS” should be extended. Further information is required to accomplish this task.
• Finally none of these instructions provide information on how to configure/add to the GUI the new chart type. The OOB Applet Controls do not appear to be configurable. Additional guidance is required for this.
