Holodeck10 is built using JAVA for the Linux Operating system. Holodeck10 Image Print utilizes the log4j package from the Free Software Foundation (www.apache.org) to facilitate logging of debuging information.
The project takes advantage of the ImageIO class to reduce the memory consumption associated with processing images. The Concurrent package that is now included with JAVA 1.5 is utilized to handle multi-threading of the processing.
Holodeck10 allows the user to select images to be set on a standard LETTER sized page to be printed in either LANDSCAPE or PORTRAIT orientation and then printed. The current version supports layouts of 1x1, 1x2, 2x2, 2x3, 4x5, and 6x8 in either LANDSCAPE or PORTRAIT.
The software uses a filechooser with a filefilter to display the image files that are available. Currently the filefilter allows for the selection of *.gif, *.jpg, *.jpeg, *.xcf, *.xpm, and *.png files.
The SimpleDocument interface in JAVA is used to format the page for printing.
