A development version of Kakadu software requires a license agreement
that has a cost
associated with it. To produce a plugin for JAI ImageIO tools that is
distributed
as part of the package would represent a new deployment/distribution
model that I'm
guessing either the author of kakadu hasn't considered, or he has
decided not to
enter into such an agreement with Sun at the moment.

So it is possible to create an ImageIO plugin for JPEG2000 using kakadu,
but the
licensing issues aren't worked out yet and may never be.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't JJ2000 the pure java implementation
of JPEG2000?
I thought the native libraries used Jasper.
