For detailed information about deprecated Oracle Multimedia API components and other features, see the Oracle Multimedia documentation in the Oracle Database Online Documentation Library. Specifically, see the documentation for releases earlier than the release when the component was deprecated.
The image processing operators dither and interleave were deprecated in Oracle Database 11g Release 1 (11.1). Although these operators still function, Oracle recommends that you stop using them as soon as possible. The dither operator has been replaced with the quantize operator. The interleave operator has been replaced with the contentFormat operator. See Chapter 5 and Appendix D for more information about the quantize and contentFormat operators.
In Oracle Database 11g, Release 1 (11.1), Oracle introduced new and substantially enhanced features to support DICOM content. As a result, beginning with Oracle Database 11g, Release 2 (11.2), the DICOM support in ORDImage objects that was introduced in Oracle Database 10g, Release 2 (10.2) is not being enhanced, and may be deprecated in a future release.
Note:The Oracle Database 10g, Release 2 DICOM support is still available in Oracle Database 11g, Release 2. However, Oracle recommends writing new medical imaging applications to use the DICOM support that was introduced in Oracle Database 11g, Release 1. Oracle also recommends migrating existing applications from the DICOM support in Oracle Database 10g, Release 2 (ORDImage objects) to the DICOM support in Oracle Database 11g, Release 1 at your convenience. See "Migrating from Release 10.2 DICOM Support" in Oracle Multimedia DICOM Developer's Guide for instructions.
