Sorry guys if I am posting it in the wrong forum.
I am trying to convert a text value (String) to an image (.jpg). My program seems to be working somewhat. It's creating a blank (whiite background) .jpg file, without my string value "Saidul Islam". I can open the file in any image editor. it just doesn't have the string I am trying to print.
And the strange part is that the program is not even terminating.
Here is the output I get when I run it
<pre>
C:\test>java Text2Image
gets here
flushed
closed
final
dispose
remove notify
done!
</pre>
it's of course printing the last line but the program is not terminating. I have been working on this since yesterday. and my brain is not functioning anymore on this. So I ask for your help.
what am I doing wrong and how do I get this working.
Here is my program-
<pre>
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.image.*;
import java.io.*;
import com.sun.image.codec.jpeg.*;

public class Text2Image {
public static void main(String args[]) {
Frame myFrame = null;
Graphics2D myGraphics = null;
try {
myFrame = new Frame();
myFrame.addNotify();
BufferedImage buffImage = new BufferedImage(400, 200, BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_RGB);
BufferedImage buff2Image = new BufferedImage(400, 200, BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_RGB);
BufferedOutputStream bos = new BufferedOutputStream(new FileOutputStream("text.jpg"));
Image offImage = myFrame.createImage(400, 200);
//myGraphics = buffImage.getGraphics();
myGraphics = buffImage.createGraphics();
myGraphics.setFont(new Font("Serif", Font.ITALIC, 48));
myGraphics.setColor(Color.red);
myGraphics.drawString("Saidul Islam", 10, 50);
myGraphics.drawImage(offImage, 0, 0, myFrame);
buffImage.createGraphics().drawImage(buffImage, 0, 0, myFrame);
JPEGImageEncoder encoder = JPEGCodec.createJPEGEncoder(bos);
encoder.encode(buffImage);

//JpegEncoder jpg = new JpegEncoder(offImage, 80, bos);
//jpg.Compress();

System.out.println("gets here");
bos.flush();
System.out.println("flushed");
bos.close();
System.out.println("closed");

buffImage.flush();
buff2Image.flush();
}
catch (Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
finally {
System.out.println("final");
if (myGraphics != null) {
myGraphics.dispose();
System.out.println("dispose");
}
if (myFrame != null) {
myFrame.removeNotify();
System.out.println("remove notify");
}
}
System.out.println("done!");
} //end of main method
} //end of Text2Image class
</pre>

Thanks for your help!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
