This guide to Apache Batik—the Java library that can be used
to read SVG files and translate the instructions in the files into
graphics—shows how Batik can also be used to save the
graphics as JPEG, TIFF, PNG, GIF, and other formats, so that the
graphics can be transferred. Using Batik to create animation
similar to Flash movies and its use for creating a drawing program
such as Corel DRAW are also covered.
