Hello,
I am working on a java web site that will store large amounts of binary data such as jpg or gif images. I was just wondering where to store those images: on disk or in a database? Could anyone please give me the pros and cons.
Thanks in advance,
Julien.

Julien,
This has been discussed a few times. See this thread for some pros and cons.
