With the advent of Java 2D and the Java Advanced Imaging API (JAI), sophisticated imaging functionality can now be incorporated into Java applets and applications. This new capability facilitates the creation of cross-platform, Internet-enabled imaging software.
Written with practicing programmers in mind, Building Imaging Applications with Java Technology is a comprehensive, practical how-to guide. This book focuses on the information imaging programmers must know to produce high-quality imaging software with Advanced Window Toolkit (AWT), Java 2D, and JAI.
Building Imaging Applications with Java Technology reviews the fundamentals of AWT, the original set of Java imaging APIs. It also presents the more sophisticated imaging capabilities in Java 2D and introduces the powerful functionality of the new JAI APIs. You will learn how to create all types of graphics; how to load, render, and manipulate images; and how to perform image analysis. Numerous detailed examples from the real world of Internet, satellite, and medical imaging illustrate key concepts and techniques.
Specific topics include:
- Loading images from JAR files
- Describing shapes and the affine transformation in Java 2D
- Designing a class library of shapes
- Designing a component class for interactive drawing
- Designing a component class for displaying images
- Printing in Java 2D
- Implementing pan and zoom
- Implementing interactive rotate, shear, and flip
- Manipulating images at the pixel level using the Java 2D API
- Working with tiles in JAI to render large images
- Image manipulation in JAI using affine transformation, projections, and warping
- Image analysis in JAI, including edge detection, statistics, and region of interest computation (ROI)
- Remote imaging using RMI and JAI
- Internet imaging, including the use of Java 2D and JAI with servlets and JSP, the design of Web-based
- imaging applications, and the Internet Imaging Protocol (IIP)
- Using the new Image I/O framework to read and write images
"Putting It All Together" sections help you put vital concepts and techniques into practice with interactive examples using actual applications. All sample code in the book is available online.

The foundation for this book was laid several years ago. I always wanted to write a down-to-earth imaging book for programmers. Many books on image visualization and image processing have been written by academics and are very math oriented. To build real-world applications, programmers don't need to use mathematics that often. This book is written by a programmer for programmers.
My association with imaging goes back many years. Although I have worked in many different areas of electrical engineering and computer science, imaging has always been my first love. Ever since I wrote a simple image-processing program in Pascal back in 1984, I have never stopped being fascinated by imaging. Later, I was fortunate enough to work for one of the biggest medical imaging companies in the world. While working for this company, I realized how important imaging is for health care. Whether the context is diagnosis, surgical planning, or radiation therapy, imaging plays a very important role in many clinical applications.
Because of my long association with medical imaging, many examples in this book are related to medical applications. Besides my experience in the field of medical imaging, I have worked in the areas of satellite imaging, GIS, and recently Internet imaging. The examples in this book reflect my association with these fields. Because the Internet is playing an increasingly important role in all our lives, an entire chapter is devoted to Internet imaging.
When I conceived the idea of writing this book many years ago, my problem was how to write code that readers could run on their own machines. The Java technology came to me as a godsend, with its "write once, run anywhere" concept. I jumped right on the Java bandwagon. Although Java may not be the best language ever written, it embodies many radical concepts, some of which are not very new. These concepts have been implemented in a simple and practical manner in Java.
This book is neither a beginner's book nor a tutorial. Although some sections may look like a tutorial, this is basically a how-to book. Readers are expected to be familiar with Java concepts. An ideal reader will be one who has programmed in Java and has some knowledge of imaging concepts.
