Provide com.sun.image.codec.jpeg package

Reported by: dmik Owned by:
Priority: blocker Milestone: RC
Component: general Version: 1.6.0-b19 Beta 2
Severity: Keywords:


The com.sun.image.codec.jpeg package (used to load and save JPEG images) is non-standard, not required by the Java specs, and therefore is missing from OpenJDK. In the modern JDKs, it is superseded by the respective classes from the standard javax.imageio package.

Since this package is however used by some old (pre 1.4) Java applications, IcedTea? people (those who provides Unix builds of OpenJDK) created a simple implementation of this package that redirects essential methods to the respective javax.imageio classes.

We should take this implementation as well because there are applications like Jedit/2 that still use it.

Done in r247. Jeti/2 works now. Fun that I didn't even have to alter the make files since everything's there. Only the *.java files themselves were absent in OpenJDK.
