This RFC aims at removing the JPEG 2000 reader inside OTB.


This reader was implemented before GDAL had a proper OpenJPEG plugin. Since GDAL 1.11, it is possible to use the OpenJPEG plugin inside GDAL to open J2K images in OTB. It was decided during a PSC meeting to remove this internal reader (PSC_meetings#Decisions_5). It will allow to remove a direct dependency to OTB, and avoid the maintenance work for the IOJPEG2000 module.
