"Sun Microsystems today announced that it has been working with
the Apache Software Foundation on a new technology initiative,
called Batik, an open source, Java technology-based toolkit for
Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG). Batik was released in beta form
today by Apache and is the third Apache project to which Sun has
donated code and technical resources. Other projects include
Jakarta, a collection of initiatives around JavaServer Pages
technology (JSP) and Java Servlets technologies, and Xerces 2, a
best-of-breed XML Parser."
"The Apache Software Foundation's XML-Batik Project received
contributions from a number of industry leaders including CSIRO,
Eastman Kodak Company, ILOG, and Sun Microsystems. As with all
Apache projects, the project exists through volunteer contributions
to ensure each project continues to exist beyond the participation
of individual volunteers, to enable contributions of intellectual
property and funds on a sound basis, and to provide a vehicle for
limiting legal exposure while participating in open-source software
SVG's cross-platform, vendor neutral format for graphics, based
on XML and developed through the W3C, is perfectly suited for the
Internet and likely to become a solution for delivering graphics
over the Web. The Batik project provides a toolkit, comprised of
several modules, that enables Java technology developers to build
Web-based applications that can handle SVG content."
