This article captures current information about the Java Advanced Imaging ImageIO Tools to document exactly what files are involved.
The ImageIO Tools consist of two jar files plus one or more files which are in native code for the platform. The names in the tables below are the ones that appeared in versions 1.0 and 1.1. As the ImageIO Tools progress, the names of the files may accumulate release identification, as in jai_imageio-1.2-pre-dr-b04.jar.

No native libraries are available for the Macintosh. Place the two jar files into /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk.../lib/ext.
When running the Launcher program on a Macintosh computer, you must start it with this command in order to stop CTP from trying to access native codes:
- java -Dcom.sun.media.imageio.disableCodecLib=true -jar Launcher.jar
- The jar files are required.
- The dll/so files are optional.
- The dll/so files provide acceleration for certain image types.
- The dll/so files may also provide support for additional image types.
- You can force the ImageIO Tools not to use the native libraries by starting a program with this switch:
