I have following code to save an image into a database (msql - datatype blob).
File f = new File("c:/myfiles/pictures/bird.jpg");
FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(f);
//connection code here...
PreparedStatement ps = con.prepareStatement("INSERT INTO mytable (image) VALUES(?)");
ps.setBinaryStream(1, (InputStream) fis, (int) (f.length()));
It works and I can retrieve the image as well.
I have another page a.jsp linked to b.jsp with <form> tag.
There is a text field (name=image) in a.jsp. If I type c:/myfiles/pictures/bird.jpg in the text field and try to retrieve it in b.jsp,
the code doesn't work. Anyone please tell me where it went wrong? The code I am using is:
File f = new File("img");
//same code as above.

That is your problem right there... You want to pass the identifier img (without quotes) to the constructor.
BTW, this isn't Shashank that took CS classes at Loyola in New Orleans with me is it?
