hey all, First, confirmed jboss-media and Media in jboss-head are the same.
Second, making headway on the MFB side of the spec. I'm still working with the JAI, the JAI-IO, and the Sun Java 1.4.2 IO libraries but plan on also adding in support for Batik-based library formats, then open to ideas on any other Media libraries we should also write MFB's for.
As for a sample application/demo/usefulness, this opens up some discussion:
I have doubts that following the spec without add-on will have any value. Definately one of those added-value kind of deals in my opinion.
One of the areas in the spec that I do not understand is the assembleContent/disassembleContent methods and the idea of 'embedded' formats. Are TIFF and MPEG considered an 'Embedded' format...and if so, how should those be handled differently?
I definately see how this would be awesome/cool, but trying to keep a level head and take care of the nitty-gritty correctly first. -D
