CSV is simple Coma Seperated Value file you could simple use a PrintWriter to create a file and give it an extension of .csv

you can't put an image in a CSV file, unless you just get the InputStream of the image and read its bytes and store them in the file in some way. and then reconstruct the image in the same way you wrote in the CSV file. however a CSV is used only plain text not for images.

... so, effectively, you can't keep images inside of CSV files. Would using the XLS file format (used by Excel) be an option? It can accommodate images, and there are Java libraries available that can create them.

Hi,

when it comes to creating excel files, you might want to take a look at jXLS.

jXLS is kind of a templating engine for exel. You create a excel file with tags as a template and jxl populates the template from java beans.
