Jeff Friesen: Comic Books and Java
On his home site, Jeff Friesen, author of 21 java.net articles, has posted an interesting little article titled Comic Books and Java. In the article, Jeff presents a Java application that reads and displays digitized comic books. In the article, Jeff explains the standard format in which comic books are digitized (a .cbz zipped file and a .cbr RAR archive file). Jeff then walks through his application code.
