javax.imageio.metadata Documentation Differences

This file contains all the changes in documentation in the package javax.imageio.metadata as colored differences. Deletions are shown like this, and additions are shown like this.
If no deletions or additions are shown in an entry, the HTML tags will be what has changed. The new HTML tags are shown in the differences. If no documentation existed, and then some was added in a later version, this change is noted in the appropriate class pages of differences, but the change is not shown on this page. Only changes in existing text are shown here. Similarly, documentation which was inherited from another class or interface is not shown here.
Note that an HTML error in the new documentation may cause the display of other documentation changes to be presented incorrectly. For instance, failure to close a <code> tag will cause all subsequent paragraphs to be displayed differently.

Class IIOMetadata, void reset()

Resets all the data stored in this object to default values usually to the state this object was in immediately after construction though the precise semantics are plug-in specific. Note that there are many possible default values depending on how the object was created. @exception IllegalStateException if this object is read-only. @see javax.imageio.ImageReader#getStreamMetadata @see javax.imageio.ImageReader#getImageMetadata @see javax.imageio.ImageWriter#getDefaultStreamMetadata @see javax.imageio.ImageWriter#getDefaultImageMetadata

Class IIOMetadataNode

A class representing a node in a meta-data tree which implements the org.w3c.dom.Element interface and additionally allows for the storage of non-textual objects via the getUserObject and setUserObject methods.

This class is not intended to be used for general XML processing. In particular Element nodes created within the Image I/O API are not compatible with those created by Sun's standard implementation of the org.w3.dom API. In particular the implementation is tuned for simple uses and may not perform well for intensive processing.

Namespaces are ignored in this implementation. The terms "tag name" and "node name" are always considered to be synonymous. @see IIOMetadata#getAsTree @see IIOMetadata#setFromTree @see IIOMetadata#mergeTree @version 0.5
