I've got to do the following -

1. load an image from a jpeg source
2. plot some points on it, circles; maybe boxes and text later
3. stream the result to file and/or a HTTP response for a servlet


Now, I should really work it out for myself, and the streaming part I've done before. It's the loading and drawing on that has me stumped. I've not done too much image work before and I'm not sure of the best approach.

all tips, pointers etc welcome. thanks.

Hi!

I would suggest using Java Advanced Imaging API. Have a look here for tutorial and samples code:

Hope it helps! Good luck!

> 1. load an image from a jpeg source

Load the jpeg file into an Image using getImage().

> 2. plot some points on it, circles; maybe boxes and text later

Graphics g = image.getGraphics();
g.drawRect(10, 10, 30, 30);
g.drawString("Some text", 20, 20);

For 1.,2. and 3. ImageIO makes this easier:

(import javax.imageio.ImageIO)
...

    try {
      BufferedImage bi = getImage("something.jpg");
      draw(bi);
      stream(bi, new FileOutputStream(response.getOutputStream());
    } catch (Exception e) {
      e.printStackTrace();
    }

...


  public BufferedImage getImage(String fileName) throws IOException {
    return ImageIO.read(new File(fileName));
  }


  public void draw(Image image) {
    // Draw some circles
    Graphics g = image.getGraphics();
    g.setColor(Color.red);
    g.fillOval(20, 20, 20, 20);
  }

  public void stream(BufferedImage image, OutputStream out) throws IOException {
    // Set headers first
    ImageIO.write(image, "jpg", out);
  }

thanks CEHJ - just what I was looking for, and as I suspected quite simple in the end.

Its for a GPS mapping project - interesting stuff but with an 'tough' deadline so I hadn't really got the time to play around and learn another API in my own time, needed a little boost in the right direction ;)
