I think it is a bad idea to put images in the database.Keep link or name of that image in database.

You can push the image thr' servlet using a frame (and then image Ref. Jason Hunter Book) - or else
save the image to file system after retrieving from database and then href it.

Generally , the images are not put in the database as it increases the load on the database by around 400% and what is generally followed is u put all the images in a particular directory on ur webserver. u just store the filename in the database . so u take the filename from the database and attach the coresponding path where the file is located and display the image .

Try and Try Till u succeed<br /> <br />Sandeep Jain
