JIIC is a streaming-based Java implementation of ISO 9660 for creating CD-ROM filesystem images ("ISO images") with the extensions El Torito, Joliet and Rock Ridge. The project is based on the SABRE streaming API and provides an Ant task for easy integration into Java-based build processes.
The ISO 9660 standard from 1988 describes the filesystem to be used for CD-ROMs. ECMA-119 (2nd edition) is fully equivalent to ISO 9660. Several restrictions apply, including character sets, deep directory nesting and filename lengths. As a result, extensions like El Torito (bootable CD-ROMs), Joliet (Unicode, longer filenames) and Rock Ridge (support for UNIX filesystem characteristics) were developed.
The Simple API for Binary REpresentations (SABRE) was developed by Michael Hartle at the Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany. It introduces a Java-based streaming API for processing binary data (as opposed to textual representations like XML) through a set of modules acting as a pipeline.
JIIC is the result of the practical part of my diploma thesis at the Darmstadt University of Technology, Department of Computer Science, Telecooperation Group. The diploma thesis was supervised by Prof. Dr. Max M�hlh�user and Michael Hartle, developer of SABRE.
JIIC and SABRE are provided as a set of Java 1.4 classes packed together in JAR files. JIIC source code is licensed under the LGPL and available from CVS.

· This release incorporates a patch for adding support for patching the ElTorito boot image (like mkisofs -boot-info-table) and padding the ISO image to 150 sectors (like mkisofs -pad).
