Graphical scanning front-end for SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy).

Overview

SwingSane is a cross platform, open source Java client (frontend) for Scanner Access Now Easy (SANE) servers (backends). SwingSane provides access to scanners connected to SANE servers on a network on any platform that supports Java and Swing. It can also be used with your own application to provide some Swing code for accessing SANE scanners.

It's good to have options and if your scanner has been abandoned by your OS and the manufacturer SANE is a good solution. SwingSane I was very interested in but it fell slightly short of my hopes. I'd love to see a moire remover etc. Then there's the fact one still needs to find and download several SANE packages and install them and get them running THEN you can use SwingSane or any other front-end. It would be nice if a dev would package the whole thing together in one download and install.

It's mainly made for accessing scanners shared from a Linux computer from Windows, Mac or another Linux machine. You can set up a sane backend on osx, but it doesn't offer all of the scanner manufacturer's backends, and I doubt if their code will ever be fully ported across to Mac. What would be great is if the scanner manufacturers got together and decided just to write everything once (for Linux and Mac) and pushed it through SANE or something similar. The scanner industry really lacks momentum on reaching any good framework (TWAIN is an abortion in my opinion, and ISIS is lacking and hardly used in consumer scanners).
