Description
Currently the 2D API does not have DataBuffer subclasses for float or
double sample types.  These are needed to allow the Java Image I/O API
to read/write such images.  They belong in java.awt.image with the other
DataBuffer classes.

EVALUATION Classes to support float & double samples have been written for the Java Advanced Imaging API: DataBufferFloat, DataBufferDouble, and FloatDoubleColorModel. The source for these should be used to create three similar classes in java.awt.image. The first two are about 100 lines of Java code and the third is about 600 lines. jerry.evans@Eng 2000-08-21
