Upon clicking, change the src attribute of the image to that of a server-side resource that returns the enlarged image.

hello.. i was able code it but it seems to have some overhead
here is the code sample
this the image in index.jsp that uses image.jsp to retrieve the image from the database i linked the image to Zoom.jsp

is there a more optimized and better way of doing it?
