i was doing image file when i add a image..i just add it with imput type = "file" then display on a jsp page with somethin like img src="<%=request.getContextPath()%>/Images/"<%=fileName%>"/> where fileName is the fileName saved into database

But when i tried to edit the in ..i deleted the image and put another image again for the same record and update the name. The renewed image will not show immediately but have to wait for a while then click back button and image will be shown. But when i do adding of a record plus uploading image to server disk.i dun have this problem... why is this so ?

Your problem most likely has nothing to do with file uploading... it's probably due to the browser doing image caching.

Take a look at this thread that described a similiar issue.
I agree. Here's the link:
