Swing widget for browsing Image I/O metadata

                 Key: GEOTK-54
                 URL: http://jira.geotoolkit.org/browse/GEOTK-54
             Project: Geotoolkit
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: Coverage
    Affects Versions: 3.05
            Reporter: Martin Desruisseaux
            Assignee: Martin Desruisseaux
             Fix For: 3.05

The content of {{IIOMetadata}} objects are uneasy to handle because there is no explit methods for fetching a particular information, and [the DTD provided in the standard Java documentation|http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/javax/imageio/metadata/doc-files/standard_metadata.html] is not easy to read. A Swing widget for browsing {{IIOMetadata}} content, a little bit like what we do for image operations with [OperationTreeBrowser|http://www.geotoolkit.org/apidocs/org/geotoolkit/gui/swing/image/OperationTreeBrowser.html], would be convenient.

Such widget can also be of real use for applications like [Puzzle|http://puzzle-gis.codehaus.org/], and would be of huge help for inspecting client data when we don't have direct access to those data: we can write a GUI application for the client and let him check his data himself.

This widget needs to work with arbitrary {{IIOMetadata}} instances using only pure JDK API. It shall not require any geotk-specific class.

The [ImageFileProperties|http://www.geotoolkit.org/apidocs/org/geotoolkit/gui/swing/image/ImageFileProperties.html] class display such metadata, together with basic informations like image size and tiling.
