public final class IIORegistry extends ServiceRegistryA registry for Image I/O service provider instances. Service provider classes may be discovered at runtime by the mechanisms documented in
ServiceLoader. The intent is that it be relatively inexpensive to load and inspect all available Image I/O service provider classes. These classes may then be used to locate and instantiate more heavyweight classes that will perform actual work, in this case instances of
ImageOutputStream. Service providers included in the Java runtime are automatically loaded as soon as this class is instantiated.
registerApplicationClasspathSpismethod is called, additional service provider instances will be discovered using
It is also possible to manually add service providers not found automatically, as well as to remove those that are using the interfaces of the
ServiceRegistryclass. Thus the application may customize the contents of the registry as it sees fit.

public static IIORegistry getDefaultInstance()Returns the default
IIORegistryinstance used by the Image I/O API. This instance should be used for all registry functions.
ThreadGroupwill receive its own instance; this allows different
Applets in the same browser (for example) to each have their own registry.

public void registerApplicationClasspathSpis()Registers all available service providers found on the application class path, using the default
ClassLoader. This method is typically invoked by the
