Snowbound Releases Raster Imaging Development Tool

Snowbound Software this week announced the release of the first member of its RasterMaster/Java family of imaging tools.

This imaging class library for Java gives developers who are creating Java applications that utilize TIFF and/or other raster images a high-performance solution.

Using the RasterMaster/Java class library, programmers can include raster images such as TIFF and BMP into their applets and applications. This means that even in a 100% Java environment developers are now free to incorporate black and white or color images in situations where they need to work with scanned or archived material.

A true Java class library, RasterMaster/Java is written in 100% Java, meaning that it is a truly portable solution. Functions that are currently implemented include image decompression, display, rotation, panning, scrolling, zooming, and anti-aliased display.

Formats that are supported include BMP and TIFF. Although the TIFF subformats include Group 4, Group 3, Fax, Huffman, compressed and uncompressed, it is all accomplished using a library that is less than 100KB.

RasterMaster/Java 1.0 can be purchased for a retail price of $995 for the developer's toolkit, with customized versions also available. For more information, or an evaluation copy, visit the Snowbound Software Web site.
