Hello,

I'm new to Java images/IO. I've an api which gives me Image object, All I need to do is save the Image onto the server. So, Applet gets an image from the sanner api, the api returns Image object. I need to serialize this and send this to the servlets. Now the servlet has to save this onto the filesystem. Could you help me through this process?

You can try wrapping the Image object in an ImageIcon object which does implement Serializable.

Or use ImageIO to turn the image into a byte[]. Use ByteArrayOutputStream and ByteArrayInputStream as intermediaries.
