Hi,
I have a BLOB field in my database which contains documents (word, PDF, etc.)
How can I retrieve and display them through an struts action?

Use the org.apache.struts.upload.FormFile object.

Hi Shane,
I 'm able to save it in the database by using the object you mentioned, but how can I retrive it and present it back?
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
