A few time ago, I shorty talked about an initiative by Moritz Petersen, Emmanuele Sordini and me: the "Java Imaging
Community" . The idea is to publish articles and tutorials related to all the available imaging APIs for Java, to fight the current fragmentation (that is, each API has its own community with just a few or no cross-interaction).
While we're going on slowly, we can announce that the first service is now available. It's the "Imaging Test Set Repository" and it's an open repository of various imaging file formats, available for testing. Moritz, Emmanuele and I are right in these days publishing the images we're using for our own projects, but we hope that other will join.
The rationale for the repository and a few information about it are available at the website .
