[JAI-IMAGEIO] POLL: Would you like the TIFF plug-ins to be in J2SE?

9 replies [Last post]
Anonymous

If you would like to see the TIFF plug-ins available in J2SE Image I/O please
respond to this message, privately if you prefer.

It would also be interesting to hear which portion of the TIFF plug-ins are of
most interest to you, e.g., bi-level, tiling, EXIF, etc.

If possible, please include the name of your organization in your response
unless it is obvious from your e-mail address.

Thanks,

Brian

I definitely support this. Hope it includes all features.
Is there any plan including CLibJPEGReader in JDK? Hope get JPEG-LS decoder in JDK.

There is interest to investigate improving the commonality between the two
plug-ins. Nothing definite as yet.

> Hope get JPEG-LS decoder in JDK.

Without a definite indication of large scale interest my guess would be that
this would be unlikely. I suggest filing an enhancement request against the
Java Image I/O classes in the java.sun.com database and then posting the bug
number to this mailing list and to java-imageio-interest@java.sun.com.

It gets my vote too. I'm trying to convert PDFs to Tiffs to fax them from our fax server. I think I've found a way around it, but I don't know how much work it will involve.

I agree with Bob Deen. It would definitely be a good idea to include this in the JRE one day. I am interested in bi-level, then tiling.

"like to"? Sure. "need"? Probably not.

A factor here is how stable (and complete!) they are. I remember seeing
a lot of traffic about bugs and such... if they're not all fixed, it
might be better to stay in IIO Tools, because the turnaround on bug
fixes and such can be much faster (not to mention having the source
readily available). If they move into the J2SE core, they become hard
to change.

I don't understand the question. JAI can use ImageIO - what is the point?

The question is whether people would like to have the TIFF reader/writer
capability currently supplied in JAI-Image I/O Tools available in the JRE.
The JRE as of J2SE 1.6 supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, and WBMP.

Doesn't seem like a good idea to me.

I understand why the BMP and WBMP are there (because of the Windows look &
feel and the need to read the Windows icons).

Anything that makes the JRE larger is a no,no in my opinion. (In fact I
would like to see the Sun strip it down even farther than it is now - remove
some of the Cobra stuff, etc.)

If you are doing a complex imaging app, seems you are probably using
webstart, and then deploying imageio tools as an extension is trivial.
