Oracle Multimedia Mid-Tier Java API enables users to write Java applications for extracting DICOM metadata outside of Oracle Database. To facilitate partitioning on DICOM metadata attributes, it is desirable to extract attributes on which data is partitioned before the data is loaded into the database. Oracle Multimedia Mid-Tier Java API enables users to extract this metadata before the data is loaded. Oracle Multimedia Mid-Tier Java API is a component of Oracle Multimedia, a feature designed to manage multimedia content within Oracle Database.

Oracle Multimedia enables Oracle Database to store, manage, and retrieve media data in an integrated fashion with other enterprise information. Oracle Multimedia DICOM extends Oracle Database reliability, availability, and data management to DICOM content including single-frame and multiframe images, waveforms, video segments, and structured reports. Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) is the dominant standard for radiology imaging and communication. Oracle Multimedia provides support and native understanding for this medical standard.

Note
In Oracle Database 11g Release 1 (11.1), the name Oracle interMedia was changed to Oracle Multimedia. The feature remains the same, only the name has changed. References to Oracle interMedia were replaced with Oracle Multimedia, however some references to Oracle interMedia or interMedia may still appear in graphical user interfaces, code examples, and related documents in the Documentation Library for Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2).

Oracle Multimedia Mid-Tier Java API provides the following classes to facilitate the extraction of DICOM metadata outside of Oracle Database.

Class
DicomService Represents the base Java class for the DICOM middle tier.
DicomLocatorService Extends the DicomService class to provide services to extract DICOM metadata using DICOM value locators.
DicomTagService Extends the DicomService class to provide services to extract DICOM metadata using DICOM attribute tags.
DicomServiceException Extends the java.lang.Exception class to report errors encountered when extracting DICOM metadata in the middle tier.

Users of Oracle Multimedia Mid-Tier Java API should be familiar with Java, Oracle Multimedia, and DICOM. See Oracle Multimedia DICOM Developer's Guide for more information about DICOM.

For more information about Oracle Multimedia, see the following documents in the Oracle Multimedia documentation set:
