TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) is a file format for storing raster graphics images. TIFF supports many different compression schemes. This post demonstrates how to build libtiff to make it work for TIFF files that hold JPEG compressed images.
I saw many posts arguing the performance winner between open-source barcode SDKs – ZXing and ZBar. As an engineer, who is developing commercial barcode reader software for Dynamsoft, I am curious about which open source project is better, ZXing or ZBar? Considering ZXing is implemented in Java, whereas ZBar is implemented in C/C++. To fairly compare their performance, I decided to use JNI to wrap ZBar C/C++ source code and benchmark them in a Java program.
