Morena 6 is Image Acquisition Framework for Java™ Platform - a bridge between the image acquisition hardware (scanners, cameras) and Java™ world. To communicate with the hardware, it uses standard interfaces - Twain for MS Windows and Mac OS X and Sane for number of Unix platforms (AIX, BeOS, Darwin, FreeBSD, HP-UX, Linux, NetBSD, OpenBSD, OS2, Solaris, Unixware). It offers to developer an intuitive, unique and efficient API.
To incorporate scanning capability into your application, you can use very simple API instead of studying hundreds pages of specifications. In the simplest case you need to call just one method to acquire an image, but you can also set contrast, brightness, image frame or many other parameters if necessary.
Client side API: implementation of java.awt.image.ImageProducer.
Device side API:
SANE support: access to current value and meta-info for all SANE driver options, predefined access methods for well-known options.
