Subject [contributions][awt] Font library
Date Fri, 06 Apr 2007 08:54:09 GMT
Dear all,

I am glad to announce a new contribution to Harmony classlib on behalf
of Intel. The archive with the contribution is uploaded to the
following location:
   http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-3583

The package contains a library for retrieving font properties and text
drawing. The library supports TrueType and Type1 fonts.

This library will give the following benefits for Harmony:
1. possibility to draw a text in headless mode
2. retrieve all the font metrics required by the JavaSE 5 spec
(current implementation can not do this)
3. all the metrics and glyph images will be the same for all supported
platforms (current implementation works with the system dependent
libraries

The package also contains ant build script and demo application.

All the opinions will be appreciated.

Thanks.

SY, Alexey
