Is there any reasons there is no platform independent ImageIO package like there is for JAI?

The reason I ask, is if I wish to deploy some Imaging Conversion software on a mail server. But it needs to be easily deployed on any solaris, linux, win box. I use some ImageIO stuff for reading and writing. So will i have to install the JRE package on each machine as well?

Primarily that we have not created one. Note however that unlike with JAI if you leave out the native component then you will lose capability, specifically lossless JPEG and JPEG-LS support and acceleration for JPEG, PNG, JPEG2000, and the TIFF bilevel encodings.

Note however that as JAI Image I/O is under the BSD license you are free to compile and redistribute binaries under the terms of that license.

If you wish to see a platform-independent installation bundle in the future then please file an issue under tha jai-imageio-core project.
