Hi Everyone! I have an jpeg image and do edge detection on this image. I plan to use sobel edge detector to help me. I have
just gotten the JAI API. I realized that they have a package with KernelJAI.GRADIENT_MASK_SOBEL_HORIZONTAL and KernelJAI.GRADIENT_MASK_SOBEL_VERTICAL.
I believe that using this will make implementing the edge detection easier.
I have written the code below but I get an error and nothing is outputted.

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.image.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import javax.imageio.*;
import javax.swing.event.*;
import java.awt.image.renderable.ParameterBlock;

public class test {

public static void loadImage() {
//Loads the image from the given path and filename
//this.img = (PlanarImage)JAI.create("fileload", "C:/pic/pic2.jpg");
PlanarImage img =(PlanarImage)JAI.create("fileload", "C:/pic/pic2.jpg");
KernelJAI sobelHorizontalKernel = KernelJAI.GRADIENT_MASK_SOBEL_HORIZONTAL;
KernelJAI sobelVerticalKernel = KernelJAI.GRADIENT_MASK_SOBEL_VERTICAL;
ParameterBlock pb = new ParameterBlock();
PlanarImage image = JAI.create("gradientmagnitude",pb, null);
JAI.create("filestore", image, "edge.jpg", "JPEG");

public static void main(String args[])


This keeps giving some error. Not sure on how to solve it. I m a newbie at this and hope someone could help me point out on what I might have done wrong.

Thanks in advance
