The status on the pluggability API is that it is now completed and in
our 2D integration workspaces waiting to go through the testing and
promotion queues. The best current estimate as to when all of that
process will be done is that it will probably appear on the OpenJDK
project site the end of next week.
In the meantime, I'm attaching a zip file of the javadoc output on the
new classes so you can start looking at the API. Keep in mind that I
mentioned earlier that this was not intended to be the eventual final
API that allows alternate implementations to play nicely on a level
playing field in the long run, but more of a stopgap temporary milestone
on the road to producing an all-open JDK. To that end, I identified
basically just 3 places where our common code depended on the Ductus
library and produced a very basic plugin interface containing 3 methods
for those cases. The plugin has been tested with a NOP stub, but not an
From here I definitely want to start opening up the discussion for some
more extensive work to plug in (or even replace) new renderers. I'd
like our goal to be a fully open implementation that performs much
better than the current collection of diverse rasterizers and not have
separate production vs. open implementations moving forward...
