I'm trying to locate the page to download jai-imageio. It used to be here, but that link doesn't seem to work any more:
https://jai-imageio.dev.java.net/
Is the site just down right now, or did it move?

Somebody decided to re "organize" what was working and broke all the links. More, download links seen some days ago on http://java.net/projects/jai/ and http://java.net/projects/jai-core moved away...

[...] "The migration was huge effort. Over 1400 projects were migrated (and some 30 projects are left to go). A large part of the migration was a big cleanup of abandoned projects. With the high abandonment rate of open source projects, the was a lot to remove. The new java.net site is smaller, faster and now the percentage of good, current content is much higher." [...]
Anyhow, you still can download the builds from
http://download.java.net/media/jai-imageio/builds/
http://download.java.net/media/jai/builds/release/
Somebody decided, daily builds for jai-core are garbage...
Another place where you can look for builds is http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/current-142188.html. All the links are working? NOT... dear Community Manager Sonya Barry...
By the way, I checked today and my CVS, even smart cannot connect to the server. It seams that CVS was not good enough and was changed fo SVN. I'll give it a try another day.
Hope this help,
Paul

Thanks for the links.
I also found this site, which is a bit better than a raw list of files:
http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/jai/downloads/download-1_1_3.html
However, I didn't seem to locate one for the JAI package. It would be nice if there was a nice, official release page where it is clear on what file to get.
Interestingly, even Oracle's official link still have the invalid link:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/current-142188.html
