Hi, I have the following code:
import java.awt.*;
import java.io.*;
import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
import Acme.JPM.Encoders.GifEncoder;
public class Confidentializer extends HttpServlet {
Frame frame = null;
Graphics g = null;
public void init(ServletConfig config) throws ServletException {
super.init(config);
// Construct a reusable unshown frame
frame = new Frame();
frame.addNotify();
}
public void doGet(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res)
throws ServletException, IOException {
ServletOutputStream out = res.getOutputStream();
try {
// Get the image location from the path info
String source = req.getPathTranslated();
if (source == null) {
throw new ServletException("Extra path information " +
"must point to an image");
}

// Load the image (from bytes to an Image object)
MediaTracker mt = new MediaTracker(frame); // frame acts as an ImageObserver
Image image = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getImage(source);
mt.addImage(image, 0);
try {
mt.waitForAll();
}
catch (InterruptedException e) {
getServletContext().log(e, "Interrupted while loading image");
throw new ServletException(e.getMessage());
}
// Construct a matching-size off screen graphics context
int w = image.getWidth(frame);
int h = image.getHeight(frame);
Image offscreen = frame.createImage(w, h);
g = offscreen.getGraphics();
// Draw the image to the off screen graphics context
g.drawImage(image, 0, 0, frame);

// Write CONFIDENTIAL over its top
g.setFont(new Font("Monospaced", Font.BOLD | Font.ITALIC, 30));
g.drawString("CONFIDENTIAL", 10, 30);
// Encode the off screen graphics into a GIF and send it to the client
res.setContentType("image/gif");
GifEncoder encoder = new GifEncoder(offscreen, out);
encoder.encode();
}
finally {
// Clean up resources
if (g != null) g.dispose();
}
}
public void destroy() {
// Clean up resources
if (frame != null) frame.removeNotify();
}
}
Can anyone tell me why we can not simply pass image to encoder's constructor? Why do we have to create a new Image offscreen from frame.createImage(w, h)?
Thanks.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
