How to show an image in JSP given the bytes[] of the photo?

Hi all,
I stored a user's picture in the db as text. For this I simply converted the JPG to bytes[] and from bytes to string: Base64.encode(bytes)
Now I wish to do the reverse - to 'output' the image on the screen. So given the bytes[] of the image with
          byte[] bytesDB = Base64.decode(userPhotoStr); //userPhotoStr is something like this: /9j/4AAQSkZJRgA...Question: How can I show the image in the JSP page embedded in the page not as download?
I'm using struts with JSP pages.
Thank you!!!!

Images in HTML are to be displayed using <img> element. All what an <img> element can take as image is an URL pointing to the image in question.
If the image is dynamic, then you can just let that URL point to some Servlet which takes some request parameter or reads the path info, reads/gets the image as byte array or (much more efficient) as inputstream and writes it to the outputstream of the response.
You may get some ideas out of this: [http://balusc.blogspot.com/2007/04/imageservlet.html].
By the way, massaging the byte array from/to a String is a terribly bad idea. Just store bytes as computer readable bytes, not as human readable characters, this makes completely no sense. Characters on its turn have to be converted to bytes again after all, but now you've let the DB do the work. All with all a performance pain. Bytes > Chars > Bytes > Chars > Bytes instead of just Byes > Bytes. In database you normally use BLOB, BINARY or equivalent for this in combination with JDBC's PreparedStatement#setBinaryStream() and ResultSet#getBinaryStream().

    You may have orientation lock turned on.

  • How to dynamically display images in JSPs

    This took a little while to figure out so I thought I'd share. After
              doing some research I was led to the following approach on how to load
              images from an Oracle database into a JSP:
              The "main" JSP:
              <HTML>
              <head>
              <title>Image Test</title>
              </head>
              <body>
              <center>
              hello
              <P>
              <img border=0 src="getImage.jsp?filename=2cents.GIF">
              <P>
              <img border=0 src="getImage.jsp?filename=dollar.gif">
              <P>
              world
              </body>
              </HTML>
              And this is the image getter:
              <% try {
              response.setContentType("image/gif");
              String filename = (String) request.getParameter("filename");
              java.sql.Connection conn =
              java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:weblogic:pool:orapool"); //
              connect to db
              java.sql.Statement stmt = conn.createStatement();
              String sql = "select image from testimage where filename = '" +
              filename + "'";
              java.sql.ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery(sql);
              if (rs.next()) {
              byte [] image = rs.getBytes(1);
              java.io.OutputStream os = response.getOutputStream();
              os.write(image);
              os.flush();
              os.close();
              conn.close();
              catch (Exception x) { System.out.println(x); }
              %>
              The thing to note is that there are no <%@ page import="..." %> or <%@
              page contentType="..." %> tags - just the single scriptlet. It
              seems that for every "<%@" the weblogic compiler sees it puts
              out.print("\r\n"); statements in the generated java source.(???) I
              don't know much about how browsers work but I think that once it sees
              flat ascii come at it it treats everything that follows as text/plain
              which is incorrect for the binary stream that's being sent. Another
              work around was to set out = null; but that's kind of ugly and might
              produce server errors. The real fix is to write a bean to handle images
              which I'll work on next (does anybody have any hints on how to do
              that?)
              -Erik.
              PS, thank you to the people that posted info in this group that helped
              me track down this problem. -
              

    Erik,
              No need to write a bean, just write a serverlet...
              you can use this function (however you might want to include some
              improved error handeling)
              Oh, FYI to prevent caching by the browser you might want to pass a parameter
              into the creation of the image like timeseconds or (in my case) variable
              text which
              was included into the image produced. (You need not even use the variable in
              the code, the server is not bright enough to tell)
              <IMG SRC=".....MyImageProducer?file=my.jpeg&timesecs=12345134">
              Jay L. Toops
              public boolean httpJpegStreamWriter(BufferedImage ib, HttpServletResponse
              response) {
              try {
              javax.servlet.ServletOutputStream myout = response.getOutputStream();
              byte b[] = new byte[1024];
              response.setContentType("image/jpeg");
              //File file = new File("./myserver/public_html", "testjlt.jpg");
              //FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(file);
              ByteArrayOutputStream fos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
              JPEGImageEncoder encoder = JPEGCodec.createJPEGEncoder(fos);
              JPEGEncodeParam param = encoder.getDefaultJPEGEncodeParam(ib);
              param.setQuality(1.0f,false);
              encoder.setJPEGEncodeParam(param);
              encoder.encode(ib);
              b = fos.toByteArray();
              response.setContentLength(b.length);
              myout.write(b, 0, b.length);
              myout.flush();
              myout.close();
              } catch (Exception e) {
              System.out.println("MY httpJpegStreamWriter Exception\n is :"+
              e.toString());
              return(false);
              return(true);

  • How to display local image using JSP in Struts

    I am trying to display image from my local disk (eg. file://C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/varshaaz/Desktop/DSC_6172.jpg). When I execute my JSP(http://localhost:8080/sharedgreeting/test.jsp) , Image doesn't display instead I see cross icon. Though properties of that icon shows correct file path.
    Content of my JSP is :
    <html>
    <body>
    <img src="file://C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/varshaaz/Desktop/DSC_6172.jpg"/>
    </body>
    </html>

    Store your images in a folder (I've called mine gfx) under the WebContent folder of the WAR and make a call to that folder using a relative link rather than one on your hard disk, if it is a web project.
    WebContent
    --- gfx
    --- stylesheets
    --- etc...
    --- createMeetingOrSomething.jsp
    Then the link in the above jsp will be:
    <img src="gfx/someJPEG.jpg" height="50">Illu

    can anyone reply this question??Appearently no.
    It might be that the question is not interesting enough to attract people.
    Or it might be that the details you provided do no suffice and some important pieces of information are missing. For eample: what are the contents of the variable? If you save the generated page, what do you get?

  • How to show "sold" image ..........

    Hi there
    Hope everybody is well ..... merry x mas and all that
    I having some problems with my site..... I have a simple site that has a simple shopping cart... with no payment gateway.... cash on delivery or bank transfer only.......
    i have product pages all with a buy now button that adds items to a cart and I have all my cart pages working fine
    I trying to figure out how to add a "sold" image to products that are sold out.....
    In my product table in my database I have a field for howmany_pro to store how many of a product I have in stock
    So that when I add a new product.... using my addproduct.php page I can enter the number ... amount....of a product I have......in stock..... into the add product form ..... as a number to be stored in my howmany_pro field in my product table .....
    So.... so far so good......
    So now ... I want that number.... the howmany_pro number to decrease everytime an item is purchased ... so I can make sure that I have the product asked for in stock..... so I don't get two people ordering the same product.....
    So that when the number of stock goes to Zero "0" I can use the show regieon if database value = "0" behaviour
    I have really no idea how to get this to work......
    Any ideas or help would be great .
    Have a great day

    Hey Charis,
    Give this a try.
    in phpmyadmin make sure the field that holds your inventory count is set to "unique".
    Then this next part I would do after making a backup of one of the trigger class files as it requires editing a certain value.
    On the insert transaction page add the "auto-increment" behaviour which can be found under developer toolbox/forms/advanced/auto increment column. Then choose the field you would like to auto increment (which will be your inventory field). This will now get the largest value from this field and add 1 to the next record inserted. So this is what we want right? almost... we want to subtract 1 instead. This is where the edit for the value in the class trigger file comes in.. I have not tested this so please make a back up of the file before saving out.
    Open "tNG_SetOrderField.class.php" which can be found under "includes/tng/triggers" and go to line 83. you will see code that says
    $sql = 'SELECT MAX(' . KT_escapeFieldName($this->field) . ') + 1 AS kt_sortvalue FROM ' . $this->table;
    There is a "+1"
    I would think change this to a "-1" and test it out.
    hopefully this works :)

  • How to show an image(jpg/gif) on a JTabbedPanel

    Hi
    I tried to show an image on a JPanel of a JTabbedPanel.
    I the only way to show it for some time was this:
    in the StateChangedListener I use drawImage when the selected panel is teh one I want to draw the image at.
    Tracing code makes the panel show, burt when I step
    all the way up, the panel will be repainted without my image.
    I use mediatracker to get the image loaded.
    Any Idea
    Hanns

    JTabbedPane has components as its tabs. Using a JPanel is not mandatory. Try using a JLabel instead with an Icon (use ImageIcon) in it.
    JTabbedPane tabbed = new JTabbedPane();
    tabbed.addTab(
        "my image panel",
        new JLabel( new ImageIcon( "images/MyIcon.gif" ) )
    );if your were referring to the image of the little tabs, use this:
    JTabbedPane tabbed = new JTabbedPane();
    tabbed.addTab(
        "my tab",
        new ImageIcon( "images/MyImage.gif" ),
        myPanel // instance of Component, can be a JPanel or any JComponent you want.
    );

  • How to show a Image (from shell, python or what ever)

    Hi guys
    An Application written in c#/mono takes up to 7 seconds to start. So i was asked to do a little splash screen for it.
    I coul'd not figure out how to do it from shell and i couldn't find the pygtk bindings installed, so i did it quick and dirty in mono showing just an animated gif and killing the process after the applicaiton started.
    The problem with this Solution is that the splash screen itself takes up to 3 seconds to show up, which is quite long.
    Any idea how i could do it from shell or maybe in python or c? Thing is, i can't install any new libraries on that system so it has to be done with the very basic stuff that comes with the xserver.
    Window manager is fvwm. And i would like to stick with the animated gif, since i already have it.
    Lg, Archdove
    display (imagemagic) is probably installed. But how can i deactivate the window decorator? It would also help if i could just set the window title by my self since there is a rule (which i cannot alter or add one more) to do this for special windows.
    Last edited by Archdove (2012-01-25 19:05:38)

    Got it with the -title switch... don't know if it will help me tough
    I just keep updateing here... the tool animate has to be used to animate the gif.
    So what i still need to know is how i can set the exact position of the window to be shown.
    animate -geometry 100%+0+300 -delay 10 -title windowTitle loading14.gif - BÄM!
