Here at IDRSolutions we have been working on our Java PDF Library and PDF to HTML5 solutions since 1999. As time has gone on, and technology has evolved, we felt that in order for us to handle complex image data in PDF files we would need our own Java solution.
We originally used ImageIO and JAI when working with the image format but later found we were hitting a barrier with what we wanted to do and saw less than satisfactory results so also went about developing JDeli an alternative Java Image Library to ImageIO and JAI with high level of support for images and wide range of image support.
In this months series index: “Handling common image file formats in Java, JDeli and other image libraries”. We will be giving you a overview of: What JDeli is? How it compares to other libraries such as ImageIO and JAI, and some useful ‘how-to’ articles.
Each link has a full supporting article with a more in depth discussion on that point. Don’t forget to check back in the future, as we are continually adding to this list!
We hope you enjoy them, and please feel free to comment below if you have any suggestions.
