Support for data source abstraction #104

ImgLib provides an interface-driven mechanism for delivering image data from a particular source. For example, implementations might provide access to image data from:

  • files
  • URLs
  • an external system such as an OMERO database

Bio-Formats also has this type of data source abstraction, and it is worth investigating how and where this feature should be modeled in the new ImageJ API.

Regardless of implementation details, it would be nice to have at least one concrete example in code demonstrating access to image data from a source other than a file on disk.

To be clear, this issue is about ImageJ2 actually supporting, in practice, data from sources other than files on disk. We can close this issue when we support URLs and OMERO well. The SJC robust-io branch is probably relevant here.
