    Can Java handle server-side image manipulations?

    PHP has built in the GD graphing library and can tap into other graphics libraries such as Netpbm (sp?). At the end of the day, I'd really like to have Java be able to take a font (TTF would be nice) and drop it into an image of my choosing.

    Does Java have something built in that can do this? Is there any third party tools it can tap into? From quick searching, it doesn't look like Java can tap into the GD library (but maybe it can tap into something else I missed).
