Displaying pdfs from MS SQL Server

I want to display pdfs stored as an image datatype in MS Sql server on a webpage. I am doing this to hide the location of the pdf. Is there a way to do this.
thanks in advance

You need to open the response output stream and write the bytes to it. Also, make sure to set the content type ("application/pdf"), the content length, and also the content disposition.
response.addHeader("Content-Disposition", ";filename=mypdf.pdf");
I agree. Here's the link:
