ContextualRenderedImageFactory provides an interface for the functionality that may differ between instances of RenderableImageOp.
A RenderableImage is a common interface for rendering-independent images (a notion which subsumes resolution independence).
The RenderedImageFactory interface (often abbreviated RIF) is intended to be implemented by classes that wish to act as factories to produce different renderings, for example by executing a series of BufferedImageOps on a set of sources, depending on a specific set of parameters, properties, and rendering hints.
This class handles the renderable aspects of an operation with help from its associated instance of a ContextualRenderedImageFactory.
An adapter class that implements ImageProducer to allow the asynchronous production of a RenderableImage.
A RenderContext encapsulates the information needed to produce a specific rendering from a RenderableImage.
