I am trying to read in am image from a file. I am using the following code:

Image image = null;
try {
// first attempt
image = ImageIO.read(new File("image.jpg"));

// second attempt
InputStream is = new BufferedInputStream(
new FileInputStream("image.jpg"));

image = ImageIO.read(is);
} catch (IOException e) {
}

I have the two different ways that I am trying to read in the image and both do not work. I eventaully want to stick the image in the database, but that is another story. Thank you in advance.

How do these calls "not work"?
The following is very bad programming practice:

If an exception were thrown you'd never know it. At the very least, print out a message that an unexpected exception occurred. I'd suggest invoking e.printStackTrace() as well.
 
I didn't do it. You can't prove it. Nobody saw me. The sheep are lying! This tiny ad is my witness!
