Writer Already obtained

I'm displaying a dynamic image in a JSP page as per the Sun Tech Tip
I then include the servlet as a usebean and call a method on it to output
the image into the JSP. This is working ok but the remaining HTML on the
page does not display because the OutputStream is already obtained. I guess from the servlet displaying the image.
Is there any way I can display this dynamic image inline in a JSP page ?
Hope you can help,

You do understand that a browser makes a separate request for every image in a page, right? You can't serve image data INLINE in a JSP, you can only insert a source reference. That reference can be to a servlet that responds with the binary image data.
I agree. Here's the link:
