Subject Re: New Incubator Proposal: Sanselan - a java image library
Date Fri, 27 Jul 2007 07:17:21 GMT
(cc'ing general@xmlgraphics to inform the team, discussion in the
incubator, please)

Interesting. I've added two additional relationships to the Wiki page:
Apache XML Graphics (Batik/FOP) and Apache Harmony.

I didn't know about Sanselan, but then we don't really have many open
wishes in XML Graphics land with the availability of ImageIO in all but
the most exotic environments. What we might profit from is a better way
to extract metadata (extents, resolution) from images before actually
decoding the image data (while reusing the InputStream). In FOP, we need
to know the extents and the resolution of an image for the layout engine.
Only during rendering do we need the actual image data either in raw or
decoded format, depending on the active output format.

Apache Harmony might be interested in additional codecs for the ImageIO

I would like to see a statement in the proposal about the relationship
of Sanselan with ImageIO. Are there plans/ideas to make Sanselan
