Is bio-formats internally JAI depended?

Hi
Does bio-format use JAI for reading TIFF files? I see
<ome-jai.version>0.1.3</ome-jai.version>
in the pom file but I would appreciate if you comment on this.

@darwinjob For the most part, Bio-Formats does not use JAI for reading TIFF, although (last I checked) it can fall back to using the JAI ImageIO code for certain TIFFs in rare cases where its built-in TIFF logic does not support the particular flavor of TIFF.

Thanks! :slightly_smiling_face:

Just to follow up, in particular JAI is being used for files with JPEG2000 encoding
