Class ImageWriter

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.imageio.ImageWriter
All Implemented Interfaces:
ImageTranscoder

public abstract class ImageWriter
extends Object
implements ImageTranscoder

An abstract superclass for encoding and writing images. This class must be subclassed by classes that write out images in the context of the Java Image I/O framework.

ImageWriter objects are normally instantiated by the service provider class for the specific format. Service provider classes are registered with the IIORegistry, which uses them for format recognition and presentation of available format readers and writers.

Field Detail

originatingProvider

protected ImageWriterSpi originatingProvider
The ImageWriterSpi that instantiated this object, or null if its identity is not known or none exists. By default it is initialized to null.


output

protected Object output
The ImageOutputStream or other Object set by setOutput and retrieved by getOutput. By default it is initialized to null.


availableLocales

protected Locale[] availableLocales
An array of Locales that may be used to localize warning messages and compression setting values, or null if localization is not supported. By default it is initialized to null.


locale

protected Locale locale
The current Locale to be used for localization, or null if none has been set. By default it is initialized to null.


warningListeners

protected List<IIOWriteWarningListener> warningListeners
A List of currently registered IIOWriteWarningListeners, initialized by default to null, which is synonymous with an empty List.


warningLocales

protected List<Locale> warningLocales
A List of Locales, one for each element of warningListeners, initialized by default null, which is synonymous with an empty List.


progressListeners

protected List<IIOWriteProgressListener> progressListeners
A List of currently registered IIOWriteProgressListeners, initialized by default null, which is synonymous with an empty List.

Constructor Detail

ImageWriter

protected ImageWriter(ImageWriterSpi originatingProvider)
Constructs an ImageWriter and sets its originatingProvider instance variable to the supplied value.

Subclasses that make use of extensions should provide a constructor with signature (ImageWriterSpi, Object) in order to retrieve the extension object. If the extension object is unsuitable, an IllegalArgumentException should be thrown.

Parameters:
originatingProvider - the ImageWriterSpi that is constructing this object, or null.
Method Detail

getOriginatingProvider

public ImageWriterSpi getOriginatingProvider()
Returns the ImageWriterSpi object that created this ImageWriter, or null if this object was not created through the IIORegistry.

The default implementation returns the value of the originatingProvider instance variable.

Returns:
an ImageWriterSpi, or null.
See Also:
ImageWriterSpi

setOutput

public void setOutput(Object output)
Sets the destination to the given ImageOutputStream or other Object. The destination is assumed to be ready to accept data, and will not be closed at the end of each write. This allows distributed imaging applications to transmit a series of images over a single network connection. If output is null, any currently set output will be removed.

If output is an ImageOutputStream, calls to the write, writeToSequence, and prepareWriteEmpty/endWriteEmpty methods will preserve the existing contents of the stream. Other write methods, such as writeInsert, replaceStreamMetadata, replaceImageMetadata, replacePixels, prepareInsertEmpty/endInsertEmpty, and endWriteSequence, require the full contents of the stream to be readable and writable, and may alter any portion of the stream.

Use of a general Object other than an ImageOutputStream is intended for writers that interact directly with an output device or imaging protocol. The set of legal classes is advertised by the writer's service provider's getOutputTypes method; most writers will return a single-element array containing only ImageOutputStream.class to indicate that they accept only an ImageOutputStream.

The default implementation sets the output instance variable to the value of output after checking output against the set of classes advertised by the originating provider, if there is one.

Parameters:
output - the ImageOutputStream or other Object to use for future writing.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if output is not an instance of one of the classes returned by the originating service provider's getOutputTypes method.
See Also:
getOutput()

getOutput

public Object getOutput()
Returns the ImageOutputStream or other Object set by the most recent call to the setOutput method. If no destination has been set, null is returned.

The default implementation returns the value of the output instance variable.

Returns:
the Object that was specified using setOutput, or null.
See Also:
setOutput(java.lang.Object)

getAvailableLocales

public Locale[] getAvailableLocales()
Returns an array of Locales that may be used to localize warning listeners and compression settings. A return value of null indicates that localization is not supported.

The default implementation returns a clone of the availableLocales instance variable if it is non-null, or else returns null.

Returns:
an array of Locales that may be used as arguments to setLocale, or null.

setLocale

public void setLocale(Locale locale)
Sets the current Locale of this ImageWriter to the given value. A value of null removes any previous setting, and indicates that the writer should localize as it sees fit.

The default implementation checks locale against the values returned by getAvailableLocales, and sets the locale instance variable if it is found. If locale is null, the instance variable is set to null without any checking.

Parameters:
locale - the desired Locale, or null.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if locale is non-null but is not one of the values returned by getAvailableLocales.
See Also:
getLocale()

getLocale

public Locale getLocale()
Returns the currently set Locale, or null if none has been set.

The default implementation returns the value of the locale instance variable.

Returns:
the current Locale, or null.
See Also:
setLocale(java.util.Locale)

getDefaultWriteParam

public ImageWriteParam getDefaultWriteParam()
Returns a new ImageWriteParam object of the appropriate type for this file format containing default values, that is, those values that would be used if no ImageWriteParam object were specified. This is useful as a starting point for tweaking just a few parameters and otherwise leaving the default settings alone.

The default implementation constructs and returns a new ImageWriteParam object that does not allow tiling, progressive encoding, or compression, and that will be localized for the current Locale (i.e., what you would get by calling new ImageWriteParam(getLocale()).

Individual plug-ins may return an instance of ImageWriteParam with additional optional features enabled, or they may return an instance of a plug-in specific subclass of ImageWriteParam.

Returns:
a new ImageWriteParam object containing default values.

getDefaultStreamMetadata

public abstract IIOMetadata getDefaultStreamMetadata(ImageWriteParam param)
Returns an IIOMetadata object containing default values for encoding a stream of images. The contents of the object may be manipulated using either the XML tree structure returned by the IIOMetadata.getAsTree method, an IIOMetadataController object, or via plug-in specific interfaces, and the resulting data supplied to one of the write methods that take a stream metadata parameter.

An optional ImageWriteParam may be supplied for cases where it may affect the structure of the stream metadata.

If the supplied ImageWriteParam contains optional setting values not supported by this writer (e.g. progressive encoding or any format-specific settings), they will be ignored.

Writers that do not make use of stream metadata (e.g., writers for single-image formats) should return null.

Parameters:
param - an ImageWriteParam that will be used to encode the image, or null.
Returns:
an IIOMetadata object.

getDefaultImageMetadata

public abstract IIOMetadata getDefaultImageMetadata(ImageTypeSpecifier imageType,
                                                    ImageWriteParam param)
Returns an IIOMetadata object containing default values for encoding an image of the given type. The contents of the object may be manipulated using either the XML tree structure returned by the IIOMetadata.getAsTree method, an IIOMetadataController object, or via plug-in specific interfaces, and the resulting data supplied to one of the write methods that take a stream metadata parameter.

An optional ImageWriteParam may be supplied for cases where it may affect the structure of the image metadata.

If the supplied ImageWriteParam contains optional setting values not supported by this writer (e.g. progressive encoding or any format-specific settings), they will be ignored.

The default implementation returns false.

Returns:
true if Raster sources are supported.

write

public abstract void write(IIOMetadata streamMetadata,
                           IIOImage image,
                           ImageWriteParam param)
                    throws IOException
Appends a complete image stream containing a single image and associated stream and image metadata and thumbnails to the output. Any necessary header information is included. If the output is an ImageOutputStream, its existing contents prior to the current seek position are not affected, and need not be readable or writable.

The output must have been set beforehand using the setOutput method.

Stream metadata may optionally be supplied; if it is null, default stream metadata will be used.

If canWriteRasters returns true, the IIOImage may contain a Raster source. Otherwise, it must contain a RenderedImage source.

The supplied thumbnails will be resized if needed, and any thumbnails in excess of the supported number will be ignored. If the format requires additional thumbnails that are not provided, the writer should generate them internally.

An ImageWriteParam may optionally be supplied to control the writing process. If param is null, a default write param will be used.

If the supplied ImageWriteParam contains optional setting values not supported by this writer (e.g. progressive encoding or any format-specific settings), they will be ignored.

Parameters:
streamMetadata - an IIOMetadata object representing stream metadata, or null to use default values.
image - an IIOImage object containing an image, thumbnails, and metadata to be written.
param - an ImageWriteParam, or null to use a default ImageWriteParam.
Throws:
IllegalStateException - if the output has not been set.
UnsupportedOperationException - if image contains a Raster and canWriteRasters returns false.
IllegalArgumentException - if image is null.
IOException - if an error occurs during writing.

write

public void write(IIOImage image)
           throws IOException
Appends a complete image stream containing a single image with default metadata and thumbnails to the output. This method is a shorthand for write(null, image, null).

Parameters:
image - an IIOImage object containing an image, thumbnails, and metadata to be written.
Throws:
IllegalStateException - if the output has not been set.
IllegalArgumentException - if image is null.
UnsupportedOperationException - if image contains a Raster and canWriteRasters returns false.
IOException - if an error occurs during writing.

write

public void write(RenderedImage image)
           throws IOException
Appends a complete image stream consisting of a single image with default metadata and thumbnails to the output. This method is a shorthand for write(null, new IIOImage(image, null, null), null).

Parameters:
image - a RenderedImage to be written.
Throws:
IllegalStateException - if the output has not been set.
IllegalArgumentException - if image is null.
IOException - if an error occurs during writing.

canWriteSequence

public boolean canWriteSequence()
Returns true if the writer is able to append an image to an image stream that already contains header information and possibly prior images.

If canWriteSequence returns false, writeToSequence and endWriteSequence will throw an UnsupportedOperationException.

The default implementation returns false.

Returns:
true if images may be appended sequentially.

prepareWriteSequence

public void prepareWriteSequence(IIOMetadata streamMetadata)
                          throws IOException
Prepares a stream to accept a series of subsequent writeToSequence calls, using the provided stream metadata object. The metadata will be written to the stream if it should precede the image data. If the argument is null, default stream metadata is used.

If the output is an ImageOutputStream, the existing contents of the output prior to the current seek position are flushed, and need not be readable or writable. If the format requires that endWriteSequence be able to rewind to patch up the header information, such as for a sequence of images in a single TIFF file, then the metadata written by this method must remain in a writable portion of the stream. Other formats may flush the stream after this method and after each image.

If canWriteSequence returns false, this method will throw an UnsupportedOperationException.

The output must have been set beforehand using either the setOutput method.

The default implementation throws an IllegalStateException if the output is null, and otherwise throws an UnsupportedOperationException.

Parameters:
streamMetadata - A stream metadata object, or null.
Throws:
IllegalStateException - if the output has not been set.
UnsupportedOperationException - if canWriteSequence returns false.
IOException - if an error occurs writing the stream metadata.

writeToSequence

public void writeToSequence(IIOImage image,
                            ImageWriteParam param)
                     throws IOException
Appends a single image and possibly associated metadata and thumbnails, to the output. If the output is an ImageOutputStream, the existing contents of the output prior to the current seek position may be flushed, and need not be readable or writable, unless the plug-in needs to be able to patch up the header information when endWriteSequence is called (e.g. TIFF).

If canWriteSequence returns false, this method will throw an UnsupportedOperationException.

The output must have been set beforehand using the setOutput method.

prepareWriteSequence must have been called beforehand, or an IllegalStateException is thrown.

If canWriteRasters returns true, the IIOImage may contain a Raster source. Otherwise, it must contain a RenderedImage source.

The supplied thumbnails will be resized if needed, and any thumbnails in excess of the supported number will be ignored. If the format requires additional thumbnails that are not provided, the writer will generate them internally.

An ImageWriteParam may optionally be supplied to control the writing process. If param is null, a default write param will be used.

If the supplied ImageWriteParam contains optional setting values not supported by this writer (e.g. progressive encoding or any format-specific settings), they will be ignored.

The default implementation throws an IllegalStateException if the output is null, and otherwise throws an UnsupportedOperationException.

Parameters:
image - an IIOImage object containing an image, thumbnails, and metadata to be written.
param - an ImageWriteParam, or null to use a default ImageWriteParam.
Throws:
IllegalStateException - if the output has not been set, or prepareWriteSequence has not been called.
UnsupportedOperationException - if canWriteSequence returns false.
IllegalArgumentException - if image is null.
UnsupportedOperationException - if image contains a Raster and canWriteRasters returns false.
IOException - if an error occurs during writing.

endWriteSequence

public void endWriteSequence()
