Aspose.Imaging Java For Jython

Introduction to Aspose.Imaging Java for Jython

What is Jython?

Jython is a Java implementation of Python that combines expressive power with clarity. Jython is freely available for both commercial and non-commercial use and is distributed with source code. Jython is complementary to Java and is especially suited for the following tasks:

  • Embedded scripting - Java programmers can add the Jython libraries to their system to allow end users to write simple or complicated scripts that add functionality to the application.
  • Interactive experimentation - Jython provides an interactive interpreter that can be used to interact with Java packages or with running Java applications. This allows programmers to experiment and debug any Java system using Jython.
  • Rapid application development - Python programs are typically 2-10X shorter than the equivalent Java program. This translates directly to increased programmer productivity. The seamless interaction between Python and Java allows developers to freely mix the two languages both during development and in shipping products.¬†

class DrawingArc:

    def __init__(self):

        dataDir = Settings.dataDir + 'DrawingImages/DrawingArc/'

        # Create an instance of BmpOptions and set its various properties

        create_options = BmpOptions()


        # Define the source property for the instance of BmpOptions

        ary = []


        # Create an instance of Image

        image = Image

        image = image.create(create_options,100,100)

        # Create an instance of Color

        color = Color()

        # Create an instance of Pen

        pen = Pen

        # Create and initialize an instance of Graphics class

        graphic = Graphics(image)

        # Clear the image surface with Yellow color


        # Draw arc to screen.

        graphic.drawArc(Pen(color.getBlack()), 0, 0, 100, 200, 45, 270)

        # Save all changes. + "DrawArcExample.bmp")

        print "Arc have been drawn in image successfully!"
