File storing

Hi all
I would like to clarify one thing. If i want to store some image from the client side to the system, which will be the better solution as we cant do the IO operation in bean. Is it a better way if i use one servlet and proceed? Instead of storing to the disc, we can use blob to store that image to DB. Please suggest your valuable comments on this.

It depends on your situation. Storing to the database is a definite option but I would hate to be loading images from the database on each request. If they are images that are rarely accessed but need to be cataloged then sure.

Please take a look at the JavaRanch Name Policy and edit your display name appropriately.
