Java toolkit out for beta testing

Daniel Thomas
A Java toolkit that allows developers to build Web- based applications that can handle Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), a cross-platform format for graphics based on XML, has been released for beta testing by the Apache Software Foundation (ASF), writes Daniel Thomas.

The development is part of a project called Batik, run by open source specialist ASF in conjunction with Sun Microsystems. Sun donated code to the project, including SVGGraphics2D generator software, which allows Java-based technology applications to export to the SVG format. It also supplied image encoders and components, such as gradient paints and filter effects.
