Hi,

I have a small applet in that am viewing a image using

URL url = new URL(getCodeBase(), "sample.jpg");
BufferedImage image = ImageIO.read(url);

After that am writing a new image using

URL url1 = new URL(getCodeBase(), "new.jpg");
ImageOutputStream ios = ImageIO.createImageOutputStream(url1);
ImageIO.write(image, type, ios);

But it's not working. Please assist me how to write image from Applet

A static image served by a web server is a read-only URL. If you want to save images, then you need to send the image data to an active server-side component (like a servlet) over HTTP. That component can then save the image data on the server.

Do you mean a stand alone application? (Applets are running inside of web browsers.) They can use any means supported by the server - HTTP upload, WebDAV, FTP, shared directory, etc. - depends on what's available.

The applet can make an HTTP POST to a servlet, and in that call send all data needed to reconstitute the image file.

Yes, there are two parts to it - the applet would contain code that makes the HTTP call, and the web app would contain code (a servlet or a Struts action) that receives the binary data sent by the image.

I suggest to start by writing an applet that makes a successful HTTP call to a servlet (or Struts action); you can worry about sending the actual image data once you have that.

Am trying to access a action from the applet using

URL urlServlet = new URL(getCodeBase(), "Dummy.do");

getCodeBase() - Is returning Nullponiterexception.


Any suggestion please.

Are you running the applet off a server? Meaning, does the URL in the browser start with "http"? Otherwise there's no code base that could meaningfully be returned.

After placing URL urlServlet = new URL(getCodeBase(), "Dummy.do"); in the init() it's working..

Anyway to change the getcodebase() value ? Because am placing my applets in a different folder am getting that folder name too appended in the url

Thanks..

If the servlet has a different URL (which is quite likely), you can pass that URL to the applet through an applet parameter. That's a good idea anyway instead of putting any part of the servlet URL in the applet code.

RMI wouldn't work, but you could use the getRGB method mentioned there.

You need to handle the response from the servlet, otherwise the request won't even get sent.
