public interface WritableRenderedImage
extends RenderedImage

WriteableRenderedImage is a common interface for objects which contain or can produce image data in the form of Rasters and which can be modified and/or written over. The image data may be stored/produced as a single tile or a regular array of tiles.

WritableRenderedImage provides notification to other interested objects when a tile is checked out for writing (via the getWritableTile method) and when the last writer of a particular tile relinquishes its access (via a call to releaseWritableTile). Additionally, it allows any caller to determine whether any tiles are currently checked out (via hasTileWriters), and to obtain a list of such tiles (via getWritableTileIndices, in the form of a Vector of Point objects).

Objects wishing to be notified of changes in tile writability must implement the TileObserver interface, and are added by a call to addTileObserver. Multiple calls to addTileObserver for the same object will result in multiple notifications. An existing observer may reduce its notifications by calling removeTileObserver; if the observer had no notifications the operation is a no-op.

It is necessary for a WritableRenderedImage to ensure that notifications occur only when the first writer acquires a tile and the last writer releases it.

 boolean isTileWritable(int tileX, int tileY)
          Returns whether a tile is currently checked out for writing.
 void releaseWritableTile(int tileX, int tileY)
          Relinquishes the right to write to a tile.
 void removeTileObserver(TileObserver to)
          Removes an observer.
 void setData(Raster r)
          Sets a rect of the image to the contents of the Raster r, which is assumed to be in the same coordinate space as the WritableRenderedImage.

Method Detail

addTileObserver

public void addTileObserver(TileObserver to)
Adds an observer. If the observer is already present, it will receive multiple notifications.

removeTileObserver

public void removeTileObserver(TileObserver to)
Removes an observer. If the observer was not registered, nothing happens. If the observer was registered for multiple notifications, it will now be registered for one fewer.

getWritableTile

public WritableRaster getWritableTile(int tileX,
                                      int tileY)
Checks out a tile for writing. The WritableRenderedImage is responsible for notifying all of its TileObservers when a tile goes from having no writers to having one writer.
Parameters:
tileX - the X index of the tile.
tileY - the Y index of the tile.

releaseWritableTile

public void releaseWritableTile(int tileX,
                                int tileY)
Relinquishes the right to write to a tile. If the caller continues to write to the tile, the results are undefined. Calls to this method should only appear in matching pairs with calls to getWritableTile; any other use will lead to undefined results. The WritableRenderedImage is responsible for notifying all of its TileObservers when a tile goes from having one writer to having no writers.
Parameters:
tileX - the X index of the tile.
tileY - the Y index of the tile.

isTileWritable

public boolean isTileWritable(int tileX,
                              int tileY)
Returns whether a tile is currently checked out for writing.
Parameters:
tileX - the X index of the tile.
tileY - the Y index of the tile.

getWritableTileIndices

public Point[] getWritableTileIndices()
Returns an array of Point objects indicating which tiles are checked out for writing. Returns null if none are checked out.

hasTileWriters

public boolean hasTileWriters()
Returns whether any tile is checked out for writing. Semantically equivalent to (getWritableTileIndices() != null).

setData

public void setData(Raster r)
Sets a rect of the image to the contents of the Raster r, which is assumed to be in the same coordinate space as the WritableRenderedImage. The operation is clipped to the bounds of the WritableRenderedImage.
