I am trying to display an image in the jsp.
my image is stored in db2 database and i retrieve it using an entity bean in the form of byte[];

e.g getImage() property returns byte[] containg the data of the image.
Now my problem is what code should be written in jsp to display the image in the browser.
regards

Remember that a JSP just builds an HTML page - to put an image in a HTML page you use the <img tag, right? Therefore your JSP must build an img tag with a HREF= with a URL to something that will serve your image as a separate operation - typically a servlet.
Most servlet/JSP books contain an example, I know mine does.
