Morena is a corss-platform framework for acquiring images in Java. Morena basically creates ties betweeen the image acquisition hardware, such as cameras scanners and the Java programming language.
Twain (a standard interface) is used to communicate with the hardware, for both Mac OS X and Windows, and Sane for various Unix platforms (AIX, BeOS, Darwin, FreeBSD, HP-UX, Linux, NetBSD, OpenBSD, OS2, Solaris, Unixware).
Morena provides you with a unique, easy-to-use yet powerful API that creates a bridge between image acquisition hardware and Java.
