Comments: Obtaining image metadata


The Java program given below reads the metadata from one or more image files given as arguments to the program. The metadata is read into an XML Document Object Model (DOM) tree, and a simple method is used to print each element and attributes (if present). The code for printing the tree is roughly based on the example given in Handling Metadata (Java Image I/O API Guide).

Thanks for this. Was able to use it as a checker for corrupt images for a resizer servlet I was working on. If the file is corrupt, the metadata call throws up exceptions.
