Hi there! I have got some questions here.

Currently I am trying to do this

response.setContentType("image/gif")
ServletOutputStream out = response.getOutputStream();
response.setContentType("text/html;charset=UTF-8");
PrintWriter out2 = response.getWriter();


But i think that the second setContentType is overwritting to the first one.
Anyone have any idea to over come this?

Thx in advance

Yes, don't do that. What are you trying to accomplish?

As I pointed out in your other topic, you can't mix HTML content and image content in one response. You need to write an <img> tag in the the HTML which make a request back to a servlet that will stream the image data (and only the image data).
