Hi Friends,
I have written a program to send Html page throgh mail,using java mail that what i did is, in my java program i am reading Html file with Buffer Reader.if there is no image in my html it is working fine. but if html have any image that image is not displaying in mail(i.e o/p). in image's place only white box is coming.
I would be thankfull to you if you can give a solution for me.
with the following code i am reading html file
String line;
String filename = "example3.html";
BufferedReader in =
new BufferedReader(
new FileReader( filename ) ); //
System.out.println( "Reading..." );
while ( ( line = in.readLine() ) != null ) {
}catch(Exception e){}
all my java file,htmlfile,*.gif file are in a local folder i.e c:/shippu/examples/

I'd be willing to bet that in the HTML you are generating that the image URL is a relative reference. Check the generated HTML and you should be able to see if this is the case.

I was thinking that you are trying to read binary data (ie an image) using a BufferedReader - ie chars.
Try converting to Streams instead.
I agree. Here's the link:
