Java2D Image Viewer
The Java 2DImage Viewer is a stand-alone application that allows loading, saving,rendering, and manipulation of JPEG, GIF and PNG images. This applicationwas developed using  the APIs developed in the book BuildingImaging Applications with Java Technology: Using AWT Imaging, Java 2D andJava Advanced Imaging. The Java 2D Viewer is an example in Chapter7 of this book, which is available as a sample chapter at the Addison-WesleyWeb site for this book. You can also download the entire source code( and the Java docs from this site.

JAIImage Viewer

This is astand-alone application with similar functionality as the Java 2D ImageViewer. You need to install the JAI package to run this application.

AWTImage Viewer

This imageviewer displays images in a 4 on 1 format ( four viewports). It supportstwo simple features: Pixel statistics and Cine. This Image Viewer was writtenusing JDK 1.1 APIs. It is available as an applet as well as application.The working principles are explained in the chapters 2 and 3 of the bookBuildingImaging Applications with Java Technology: Using AWT Imaging, Java 2D andJava Advanced Imaging.
This zip fileincludes the source code for both the Image Viewer applet and

JarImage Browser

The Jar ImageBrowser bean lets you view, manipulate and print  images from a jaror zip file. When you select a valid jar file, this bean lists the imageentries in that file. You can sort the entries by alphabetical order orby date. You can select one or more of images from this list and launchthe  image viewer. The image viewer will adjust the sizes of the imagesto display all the selected images. This bean can be run as a stand-aloneapplication. The implementation uses the new Java 2 features that includesCollections,javautil.jar, Java 2D and Swing. To run this bean/application,you need to install Java 2 or later version. This bean comes with a jarfile that can be directly executed. This is a new feature in Java 2.
