Leverage new Java2D Marlin rasterizer for JavaFX

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      JDK 9 integrated a new rasterizer for Java2D called Marlin. That rasterizer is now the default shape scan-line converter for all of AWT/Swing/Java2D in JDK 9.

      JavaFX uses its own pluggable rasterizer mechanism with a slightly different internal interface that is very close to the interface used by Java2D. The changes to use Marlin from the JavaFX pipelines would be minor.

      For JDK 9, Marlin should be added as a non-default alternate rasterizer for JavaFX using command line switches to enable it similar to how we control using the Java or native version of the existing JavaFX rasterizer (based on Pisces from the OpenJDK).
