Java Advanced Imaging and Java Advanced Imaging Image I/O Tools Source Code Now Available!

Posted by brinkley on February 11, 2005 at 12:04 AM PST

I am pleased to announce that Java Advanced Imaging and Java Advanced Imaging Image I/O Tools source code is now available on

The Java Advanced Imaging API provides a set of object-oriented
interfaces that support a simple, high-level programming model
which lets you manipulate images easily. The Java Advanced Imaging
API goes beyond the functionality of traditional imaging APIs to
provide a high-performance, platform-independent, network-centric
and extensible image processing framework.

JAI Image I/O Tools provides reader, writer, and stream plug-ins
for the Java Image I/O Framework and Image I/O-based read and write
operations for Java Advanced Imaging. Reader-writer plug-ins
are supplied for the BMP, JPEG, JPEG 2000, PNG, PNM, Raw, TIFF, and
BMP image formats; a writer plug-in is supplied for the GIF image
format (a GIF reader plug-in is supplied de facto by J2SE). The
supplied streams and associated service providers use the New I/O

These two project sets complement the existing Java 3D projects that already exist in the media projects. My hearty congratulations to the media development team on making these projects available to the JavaDesktop Community.
