Java Media Framework

In my grad-level software engineering course, I had to write this report on the Java media framework.  I was hoping to do COM for Win32, but this was the last subject left.  It turned out to be fairly interesting.


The Java Media Framework (JMF) is a recent API for Java dealing with real-time multimedia presentation and effects processing.  JMF handles time-based media, media which changes with respect to time.  Examples of this are video from a television source, audio from a raw-audio format file and animations.  The beta JMF 2.0 specification will be used for this report, as they currently reflect the features that will appear in the final version.
