Hello All,


Please review the following fix in JDK10 :


Bug : https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8191431 

Webrev : http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~jdv/8191431/webrev.00/ 


Issue : When we try to read multiple PNG images with different IDAT chunk positions using the same PNGImageReader instance we get "IIOException: Error reading PNG image data".


Root cause : Issue is happening because of changes present in HYPERLINK "https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8164971"JDK-8164971.

                Under HYPERLINK "https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8164971"JDK-8164971 we have made changes such that imageStartPosition for IDAT chunk will be updated only once for a given PNGImageReader instance while reading metadata.

                case IDAT_TYPE:

                    // If chunk type is 'IDAT', we've reached the image data.

                    if (imageStartPosition == -1L) {


                         * PNGs may contain multiple IDAT chunks containing

                         * a portion of image data. We store the position of

                         * the first IDAT chunk and continue with iteration

                         * of other chunks that follow image data.


                        imageStartPosition = stream.getStreamPosition() - 8;



                When we use same PNGImageReader instance to read another PNG image and if IDAT chunk position and length differs we will get IIOException.


Solution : We already have resetStreamSettings() method which we call when user tries to decode an image under ImageReader.setInput(). In resetStreamSettings() function if we initialize imageStartPosition to '-1L' it will resolve this issue.
