3 Notes

  1. The jar files are typically located in the Java jre/lib/ext directory.
  2. The dll files are typically located in the Java jre/bin directory on a Windows system.
  3. The so file is typically located in the Java jre/i386 directory on an Intel Linux system.
  4. All the binary builds are available on
  5. The jar files are required.
  6. The dll/so files just provide acceleration for certain image types.
  7. The dll/so files may provide support for additional image types.
  8. You can force the ImageIO Tools not to use the native libraries by starting a program with this switch:
