Subject Tag libs for Images
Date Fri, 23 Nov 2001 14:04:59 GMT

It would be nice to have a set of jsp custom tag libs for image manipulation
viz., dynamic image creation, thumbnail generation, etc.

I am interested in developing and contributing for the set of tags. If you
think this will be  a useful set of tags, lets discuss about what all
features to go for.

As an example, I developed a tag which takes any image (url) and overlays a
string on it and creates a resultant dynamic image which is then displayed
in the page.

<img:overlay >
we may like to specify font, color, size, etc., too.

Take a look at the resultant image:
	<img src="http://www.mullassery.com/images/try.gif">
(This was generated with custom tags working on Tomcat on Windows)

To do load images on Unix without the X-Windows running (as in most web
servers), custom toolkits are required since Component peer instances are
not available. Maybe http://www.eteks.com/pja/en can be used.
