      Description

      XPDF documentation tells users they have to manually download and install "jai_imageio" JAR:

      https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/DSDOC4x/Configuration+Reference#ConfigurationReference-XPDFFilter

      However, this dependency now exists in Maven Central:

      jai_imageio: http://repo2.maven.org/maven2/com/sun/media/jai_imageio/
      jai_core: http://repo2.maven.org/maven2/javax/media/jai_core/

      Is there any reason why we shouldn't just configure our POM to automatically pull in the necessary dependencies via Maven?

      https://github.com/DSpace/DSpace/blob/master/dspace/modules/additions/pom.xml#L52

      (If we wanted, we also could therefore remove the "-Pxpdf-mediafilter-support" Maven option and just install these dependencies by default.)
