Hi all,
I have a problem on encoding/decoding a TIFF image into "raw" tiff image, I'm searching a library that permit me to convert a fax image to tiff.
I've found fax2tiff written in C that permit me to do that, is there something similar in JAVA?
Thanks a lot.

Both JAI Image I/O and JAI provide TIFF reader/decoder and writer/encoder capability. They do not however provide raw fax read/write capability. By obtaining the source code for either of these you could however easily create a raw fax decoder yourself. In JAI Image I/O you would simply adapt the TIFF fax decompressors to your needs.
