Neither Java Imaging nor JAI have basic support for standards like TWAIN or platform-specific implementations/abstractions like SANE (Unix, Linux, OSX) or WIA (Win32).

Are there any plans to support these standards? Using JNI is a bad workaround for a platform independant language... java.

Another option for a Java wrapper for TWAIN is Morena, available at http://www.gnome.eu/Twain/jtp.html

Hi,

You can get Java TWAIN & SANE implementation from:

JTWAIN: http://asprise.com/product/jtwain
JSANE: http://asprise.com/product/jsane

regards.

From the perspective of Image I/O, TWAIN as a source
could be abstracted as a javax.imageio.ImageInputStream.
Since that interface is designed as a pluggable interface,
just like the image plugins, then this would be something
that a 3rd party can provide - it doesn't have to come
with the JRE.
Plus JAI open-sourced its tools so you can write these
and contribute them back into JAI.
