This does not exist in OpenJDK. It was proprietary code that we could 
not open source.
Also it was never part of the Java SE spec. Just "co-bundled".
If you want to use it you need to use the Sun/Oracle "product" JDK although
we'd like to rip it out even from that in JDK8.
The standard replacement is  "javax.imagio" which has been there since 1.4
