read and display an Image

Hay Everyone,

I would like to read an image file (jpg, gif, etc) from disk and make the image available to a jsp for display. I know the location and name of the image file because I have stored the file name in an EJB when I wrote the image file to disk after the user uploaded the file via a jsp. The image is assocaited with a piece of equipment. Later, when the user is viewing the equipment I have the image name hyerlinked. From this point I have not figured out how to re-produce the image in a jsp on the click.

How does one do that?

TIA for all help!

Perhaps a hyperlink to the image?

A hyper link will not work because the source of the file is not known until run-time when the user selects aa item. I know what item the user is working with when they click on an image link. I do not know how to read the image file and how to get it into the jsp space...

If it's a JSP, you can dynamically put the path to the image into the JSP:
