Release 1.2
Class Image

public final class Image
extends Resource

Instances of this class are graphics which have been prepared for display on a specific device. That is, they are to display on widgets with, for example, Button.setImage().

If loaded from a file format that supports it, an Image may have transparency, meaning that certain pixels are specified as being transparent when drawn. Examples of file formats that support transparency are GIF and PNG.

In RWT, images are shared among all sessions. Therefore they lack a public constructor. Images can be created using the getImage() methods of class Graphics
