Java Programming Language is providing many APIs for processing the image and performing various operations on the image. Java is high level programming language used now a days for the development and deployment of various types of applications. The Java image API and the third party APIs can be used for handling the images in Java.
In this section we are discussing about the Java API and third party APIs for processing the images in the Java Language.
In Java there is API know as Java Advanced Imaging (JAI), which is downloading from the Oracle website and it provides the API which can be used to create own image processing routine in the Java Program. This is available with JDK and there is no extra licensing cost or any restrictions. This API is available for download for the the Windows, Solaris, and Linux platforms from the Oracle website. The Mac OS X version of the API can be downloaded from the Apple website.
Apart from the JAI there are many free and open source API available in Java for image processing. These APIs includes ImageJ, Fiji, Commons Imaging, ImageMagick, Endrov, LeadTools and OpenCv. You can use these APIs in your Java Program.
Here are the tutorials of image processing in Java:
