Hi all,
I have a link in the jsp page that pops up image when i click it. Iam getting the image from the database and storing it in some location. Iam taking this location from the properties file. When i do things from my system everything works fine. But when i click the link from other system then it's creating a problem.

I got the error as "The page could not be displayed". Why is this so? can anyone help me in this regard?

Thanks,
sowjanya

check the URL for the popup.
Most likely it's pointing to an address on your own machine (either directly on your harddisk or hard to http://localhost/... ).
Change that to the real URL for the file (make it a relative URL to the page you're linking from) and it should appear.

This is how i had coded for my link

I'm making use of click = javascript:window.open('viewLogo.jsp,'Logo','toolbar=no,width=150,height=150');
return false;

For each and every subId, there will be a different image stored in the database. When i access this link from other system I could get the bytes that's being read(I could see this from my stdout.txt) but the image is not getting displayed....

How to go about it?

sowjan,

JavaRanch is a community of people from all over the world, many of who are not native English speakers. While using abbreviations like "u" instead of spelling out "you" is convenient when text messaging your friends on a cell phone or in a chat room, it presents an extra challenge to those that are already struggling with English. Additionally, such shortcuts may confound automated translation tools that patrons of the Ranch may be making use of.

I would like to ask for your help in making the content of JavaRanch a little easier to read for everybody that visits here by not using such abbreviations.

thanks,
bear
