Hi Kevin,

is there any public API that allow adding new Image formats?

Thank you,

Subject: Re: SVG

JavaFX supports SVG paths both directly and via CSS, but there is no general support for SVG.

As for you other question, unless they use public API they will no longer work. Applications can export internal packages via a command line switch, but it is quite fragile and not likely to work from release to release.

I found nice the solution from codecentric interesting: But it uses com.sun.javafx.iio.ImageFormatDescription, com.sun.javafx.iio.ImageLoader, com.sun.javafx.iio.ImageStorage and com.sun.javafx.iio.ImageLoaderFactory. in openjfx9 is still there in com.sun... What's going to happen to these classes in Java 9? Is there strategy about providing ways to use them?
