Chet Haase has provided very detailed information on strategies for loading images in Java and acheiving good display performance: ToolkitBufferedVolatileManagedImage Strategies. We’re doing quite a bit of image work (with 600 dpi 8.5″x11″ images), so I’ve already become acquainted with Java 1.4 ImageIO and JDK 1.2 BufferedImage. Most recently, I’ve been looking at the operation chaining features of Java Advanced Imaging in an attempt to quickly provide high-quality screen resolution scalings of those 600 dpi images. Too bad we can’t just get 600 dpi screens 🙂
