Support for data source abstraction

Reported by: curtis Owned by: curtis
Priority: major Milestone: imagej-2.0.0
Component: ImgLib2 Version:
Severity: serious Keywords:
Cc: Blocked By: #227


Imglib provides an interface-driven mechanism for delivering image data from a particular source. For example, implementations might provide access to image data from:

  • files
  • URLs
  • an external system such as an OMERO database

Bio-Formats also has this type of data source abstraction, and it is worth investigating how and where this feature should be modeled in the new ImageJ API.

Regardless of implementation details, it would be nice to have at least one concrete example in code demonstrating access to image data from a source other than a file on disk.

The ImgLib container mechanism is great, but we need to actually *support* data from various sources (files, URLs, etc.) from within ImageJ2 for this ticket to be able to close.
