Interface RenderableCollectionImageFactory


public interface RenderableCollectionImageFactory

The RenderableCollectionImageFactory (RCIF) interface is intended to be implemented by classes that wish to act as factories to produce different collection image operators. In JAI, the create() method defined by this interface will be invoked in a chain of CollectionOps when the operation is being executed in renderable mode. The images contained in the generated CollectionImage would be expected to be RenderableImages.

Since:
JAI 1.1

Method Summary
 CollectionImage create(ParameterBlock parameters)
          Creates a CollectionImage that represents the result of an operation (or chain of operations) for a given ParameterBlock.
 

Method Detail

create

public CollectionImage create(ParameterBlock parameters)
Creates a CollectionImage that represents the result of an operation (or chain of operations) for a given ParameterBlock. If the operation is unable to handle the input arguments, this method should return null.

Generally this method is expected to be invoked by an operation being executed in renderable mode. Therefore the images contained in the generated CollectionImage would be expected to be RenderableImages.

Returns:
A CollectionImage containing the desired output.
