getPixel() Function

I am trying to write a java program that will get the color of a pixel at a certain x and y coordinate...
i am able to load in the image using JAI but dont know how to go about getting the color of the pixel at the specified coordinates
Does anyone know if it is a built in method in JAI
if not can anyone provide som insight on how to do this, the image is loaded in as a PlanarImage...thanks

PlanarImage pi     // this is your image

// Get the number of bands on the image.  
SampleModel sm = pi.getSampleModel();  
int nbands = sm.getNumBands();  

// We assume that we can get the pixels values in a integer array.  
int[] pixel = new int[nbands];      

// Get an iterator for the image.  
RandomIter iterator = RandomIterFactory.create(pi, null);  

iterator.getPixel(w,h,pixel);   // this will get the pixel at (w,h)

this is what i have...
It is not getting the right color though...i created a sample JPG file that is 3 pixels high by 8 pixels wide and in photoshop i can see what the colors of the pixels are, but the java program is telling me something different
checking pixel 1,1 assuming it is the upper left pixel the java prog tells me

nbands=3
Done!
RED=100
GREEN=93
BLUE=170

photoshop tells me
r=252
g=254
b=255

what you see below is the coldfusion cfx tag that i am using this in...the parameters are being passed to the java by coldfusion parameters...
any other help would be appreciated...

import com.allaire.cfx.*;
import java.awt.image.*;
import javax.media.jai.*;
import javax.media.jai.iterator.*;


public class CFX_GetPixel implements CustomTag{

    public void processRequest(Request request, Response response) throws Exception {
        String loadFilePath = request.getAttribute("loadFilePath");
        String saveFilePath = request.getAttribute("saveFilePath");
        String width = request.getAttribute("xCOORD");
        String height = request.getAttribute("yCOORD");
       
        int x=Integer.parseInt(width);
        int y=Integer.parseInt(height);
       
        PlanarImage pi = (PlanarImage)JAI.create("fileload", loadFilePath);
        // Get the number of bands on the image.  
        SampleModel sm = pi.getSampleModel();  
        int nbands = sm.getNumBands();  
        response.write("nbands="+String.valueOf(nbands)+"<br>");
        // We assume that we can get the pixels values in a integer array.  
        int[] pixel = new int[nbands];      

        // Get an iterator for the image.  
        RandomIter iterator = RandomIterFactory.create(pi, null);  
        //response.write("iterator="+String.valueOf(iterator)+"<br>");
        iterator.getPixel(x,y,pixel);   // this will get the pixel at (w,h)
        response.write("Done!<br>"+"RED="+String.valueOf(pixel[0])+"<BR>"+
            "GREEN="+String.valueOf(pixel[1])+"<BR>"+"BLUE="+String.valueOf(pixel[2]));
    }
}

i don't see why it is giving a wrong value
can you print x, y before getpixel and make sure

yes and it is getting the correct value 1,1
does the x,y plane of the image start at 0,0 meaning 0,0 is the most upper left pixel of the image??

yes, it starts at 0,0

doesnt solve the problem, but good to know.
I assume then that a pixel in a PlanarImage is the same as 1 pixel in a photoshop jpg file...

i am now starting to think the problem lies in adobe and it is not a good tool for determining pixel color
because if i put the img i am examining on the web page calling the java and size it to 300x800 it is infact getting the color shown...i will test more tomorrow and award points after testing...

they should be the same ideally ... i havent really used photoshop much
but you can always tell by manual inspection ...

RED=100
GREEN=93
BLUE=170
would be kinda bluish


photoshop tells me
r=252
g=254
b=255
this is almost pure white
