Retrieving JPGs from LDAP

Good morning, all.

A coworker of mine presented me with an interesting question this morning, and I thought I'd ask here as I myself don't know the answer (not being an LDAP expert or having to often use it). I've looked through Sun's own documentation and have been unable to find an answer.

My coworker's client is requesting to be able to display a JPG along with retrieved records from LDAP. They're using the Sun Directory Server 5.2 and displaying via JSPs - however, the taglib from Sun in the resource kit doesn't seem to be able to handle retrieving and outputting images in any easily discernable manner.

Does anyone around here know of a means to easily pull images from LDAP and display them in-line in a JSP page?

Thanks in advance!
