Package com.luciad.lucy.format

package com.luciad.lucy.format
Provides support facilities for adding a new data format to Lucy. The classes in this package can be used in the implementation of an addon to easily add a new format to Lucy.

Clients are expected to implement the basic functionality of the new format in a subclass of ALcyFormat and add several standard behaviours by wrapping it with the appropriate ALcyFormatWrapper subclasses. For instance, a wrapper is available that enables asynchronous painting of the layers of the wrapped ALcyFormat.

TLcyFormatTool can then be used to plug all the functionality of the ALcyFormat into the Lucy backend.
