I need to retrieve the image stored in database using struts.
I think i have inserted image in to my table by using following.




sql query to store image is inside table: user_faculty
While creating table I have given datatype as BLOB for image attribute.

I try to display the saved image in as:

userinfo.jsp :

Output is not showing an image but some value like [B@189cab

I think i am wrong in displaying the image using JSP ,

Any help ranchers?

can you please tell how you have saved image in the DB?(Just to know)

My suggestion, upload the image in to your server with unique file name and save the file name in your DB... when you want to retrieve the image get the file name from DB and read the file from the stored location...

I tend to steer people away from roseindia because of the poor quality of the examples. But the bottom line is that you'll need to stream the image blob to the client using a servlet or action. The linked roseindia example assumes it exists in a file, but the underlying technique is the same.
