JDeli Buyers Guide

Should we use JDeli? This is a guide to help you to decide. It explains what JDeli is, who it is for, who it is not for, and what makes it worth purchasing. We hope it makes your decision easier!

What problem does JDeli solve?

JDeli provides developers with much better image file support in Java compared to the built-in ImageIO image library or other alternatives.

What image formats can JDeli support?

JDeli can currently read into Java: BMP, DICOM, EMF/WMF, GIF, HEIC, JPEG, JPEG2000, PNG, PSD, SGI, TIFF and WebP.

JDeli can currently write from Java: BMP, HEIC, JPEG, JPEG2000, PNG, and TIFF.

Are there free tools to improve Java Image support?

Great question!

GitHub is full of semi-finished image libraries of varying quality ranging from okay to pretty horrific.

Why do developers buy JDeli?

Our customers tell us the reasons they choose JDeli include:

  1. More control over image output (ie compression, bits used, Colorspace, indexing)
  2. More complete support for image formats (ie YCCK JPEG) and better ability to handle broken files
  3. Generates smaller files with no performance penalty
  4. Reads and writes additional formats without platform dependencies
  5. Easy to migrate existing code - replace ImageIO.read and ImageIO.write with JDeli.read and JDeli.write
  6. Sinple to install as JDeli is supplied as a single jar file. Just add to the module or classpath
  7. Low-memory pure Java solutions (no native heap issues)
  8. Ongoing proactive development of the product
  9. Being able to contact someone when they need help and getting rapid responses

What happens if we stop paying for JDeli?

If you are on a yearly license you will need to remove the software. If you are on an OEM license, you can carry on using your current version but will receive no new versions or support.

Is it possible to try out JDeli before I buy?

Of course. There is a trial version of the latest release available.

Can I read any independent user reviews of JDeli?

Yes. We have added JDeli to the independent review site g2 so that anyone can read (and write) their own views on the software. You can find them here.

I have a question that is not covered above

There is an open portal for any technical queries and you can talk to our sales team via zoom or email.
