Dear Masters

I want to use out.print("<img src=...>") in servlet of a package.
I want to know where the images should be stored and how can I give the image path in src=...
Is there any special considerations while using a jpeg file to display using out.print("<img src=...>")

Kindly help

It can be anywhere in the web app outside of the WEB-INF folder. See the JSP FAQ for an entry on properly creating URLs to such resources.

Basheer,

I would use a JSP page for this.

For example, in a JSP page called "images.jsp".

<html><body>

<img src="/image1.jpg" >

</body></html>

The image in this case resides inside the root directory of your application.
For example E:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache Tomcat 6.0.16\webapps\examples\image1.jpg. "examples" being the name of your web application.

In your servlet code:

RequestDispatcher rd = request.getRequestDispatcher("/images.jsp");
rd.forward(request,response);

For simplicity I would put the images.jsp page in the "examples" folder.

Hope this helps

Sunil

No. Bad idea! Do not mix resources for your web application with the examples provided by Tomcat.

Basheer,
Bear is right the name "examples" caused confusion, I meant save the "images.jsp" in the root directory of your application. Say, the name of your application's root directory is beer, then we can save "images.jsp" in the "beer" folder.
