Hi All,
I have images stored in the database. What would be the proper way to fetch these images. I have used <c ut tag in JSP but unable to get images.
How can i do this?? in struts which option is better--- 1) displaying images from database or 2) creating new image folder to keep image files

Thanks

Unless there is a compelling reason to store images in the database, I would use the file system and standard HTML IMG tags.

I'd agree with Joe, but if that isn't possible, you can stream images to the response through an action or a servlet and access them via an IMG tag.

No, there's the <img...> tag. If you're streaming the image from the DB through an action or servlet you have the "src" attribute be the appropriate servlet/action URL.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
