Class TIFFDirectory

public class TIFFDirectory
extends Object
implements Serializable

A class representing an Image File Directory (IFD) from a TIFF 6.0 stream. The TIFF file format is described in more detail in the comments for the TIFFDescriptor class.

A TIFF IFD consists of a set of TIFFField tags. Methods are provided to query the set of tags and to obtain the raw field array. In addition, convenience methods are provided for acquiring the values of tags that contain a single value that fits into a byte, int, long, float, or double.

Every TIFF file is made up of one or more public IFDs that are joined in a linked list, rooted in the file header. A file may also contain so-called private IFDs that are referenced from tag data and do not appear in the main list.

This class is not a committed part of the JAI API. It may be removed or changed in future releases of JAI.

Constructor Detail

TIFFDirectory

public TIFFDirectory(SeekableStream stream,
                     int directory)
              throws IOException
Constructs a TIFFDirectory from a SeekableStream. The directory parameter specifies which directory to read from the linked list present in the stream; directory 0 is normally read but it is possible to store multiple images in a single TIFF file by maintaing multiple directories.

Parameters:
stream - a SeekableStream to read from.
directory - the index of the directory to read.
Throws:
IOException

TIFFDirectory

public TIFFDirectory(SeekableStream stream,
                     long ifd_offset,
                     int directory)
              throws IOException
Constructs a TIFFDirectory by reading a SeekableStream. The ifd_offset parameter specifies the stream offset from which to begin reading; this mechanism is sometimes used to store private IFDs within a TIFF file that are not part of the normal sequence of IFDs.

Parameters:
stream - a SeekableStream to read from.
ifd_offset - the long byte offset of the directory.
directory - the index of the directory to read beyond the one at the current stream offset; zero indicates the IFD at the current offset.
Throws:
IOException
Method Detail

getNumEntries

public int getNumEntries()
Returns the number of directory entries.


getField

public TIFFField getField(int tag)
Returns the value of a given tag as a TIFFField, or null if the tag is not present.


isTagPresent

public boolean isTagPresent(int tag)
Returns true if a tag appears in the directory.


getTags

public int[] getTags()
Returns an ordered array of ints indicating the tag values.


getFields

public TIFFField[] getFields()
Returns an array of TIFFFields containing all the fields in this directory.


getFieldAsByte

public byte getFieldAsByte(int tag,
                           int index)
Returns the value of a particular index of a given tag as a byte. The caller is responsible for ensuring that the tag is present and has type TIFFField.TIFF_SBYTE, TIFF_BYTE, or TIFF_UNDEFINED.


getFieldAsByte

public byte getFieldAsByte(int tag)
Returns the value of index 0 of a given tag as a byte. The caller is responsible for ensuring that the tag is present and has type TIFFField.TIFF_SBYTE, TIFF_BYTE, or TIFF_UNDEFINED.

public long getFieldAsLong(int tag,
                           int index)
Returns the value of a particular index of a given tag as a long. The caller is responsible for ensuring that the tag is present and has type TIFF_BYTE, TIFF_SBYTE, TIFF_UNDEFINED, TIFF_SHORT, TIFF_SSHORT, TIFF_SLONG or TIFF_LONG.
