Hi!
I have an Oracle db with images. I read an image from this db with an applet. I have the image in a buffer. How can I display this image in that applet?

Thanks!

Hi atti75. I don´t know how u have stored image date, but here u have an example to display an image stored like InputStream:

public class BMPReader extends Object
{
// Constants indicating how the data is stored
    public static final int BI_RGB = 0;
    public static final int BI_RLE8 = 1;
    public static final int BI_RLE4 = 2;

    public static ImageProducer getBMPImage(InputStream stream)
    throws IOException
    {
// The DataInputStream allows you to read in 16 and 32 bit numbers
        DataInputStream in = new DataInputStream(stream);

// Verify that the header starts with 'BM'

        if (in.read() != 'B') {
            throw new IOException("Not a .BMP file");
        }
        if (in.read() != 'M') {
            throw new IOException("Not a .BMP file");
        }

// Get the total file size
        int fileSize = intelInt(in.readInt());

// Skip the 2 16-bit reserved words
        in.readUnsignedShort();
        in.readUnsignedShort();

        int bitmapOffset = intelInt(in.readInt());

        int bitmapInfoSize = intelInt(in.readInt());

        int width = intelInt(in.readInt());
        int height = intelInt(in.readInt());

// Skip the 16-bit bitplane size
        in.readUnsignedShort();

        int bitCount = intelShort(in.readUnsignedShort());

        int compressionType = intelInt(in.readInt());

        int imageSize = intelInt(in.readInt());

// Skip pixels per meter
        in.readInt();
        in.readInt();

        int colorsUsed = intelInt(in.readInt());
        int colorsImportant = intelInt(in.readInt());
        if (colorsUsed == 0) colorsUsed = 1 << bitCount;

        int colorTable[] = new int[colorsUsed];

// Read the bitmap's color table
        for (int i=0; i < colorsUsed; i++) {
            colorTable[i] = (intelInt(in.readInt()) & 0xffffff) + 0xff000000;
        }

// Create space for the pixels
        int pixels[] = new int[width * height];

// Read the pixels from the stream based on the compression type
        if (compressionType == BI_RGB) {
            if (bitCount == 24) {
                readRGB24(width, height, pixels, in);
            } else {
                readRGB(width, height, colorTable, bitCount,
                    pixels, in);
            }
        } else if (compressionType == BI_RLE8) {
            readRLE(width, height, colorTable, bitCount,
                pixels, in, imageSize, 8);
        } else if (compressionType == BI_RLE4) {
            readRLE(width, height, colorTable, bitCount,
                pixels, in, imageSize, 4);
        }

// Create a memory image source from the pixels
        return new MemoryImageSource(width, height, pixels, 0,
            width);
    }

// Reads in pixels in 24-bit format. There is no color table, and the
// pixels are stored in 3-byte pairs. Oddly, all windows bitmaps are
// stored upside-down - the bottom line is stored first.

    protected static void readRGB24(int width, int height, int pixels[],
        DataInputStream in)
    throws IOException
    {

// Start storing at the bottom of the array
        for (int h = height-1; h >= 0; h--) {
         int pos = h * width;
            for (int w = 0; w < width; w++) {

// Read in the red, green, and blue components
          int red = in.read();
          int green = in.read();
          int blue = in.read();

// Turn the red, green, and blue values into an RGB color with
// an alpha value of 255 (fully opaque)
                pixels[pos++] = 0xff000000 + (red << 16) +
               (green << 8) + blue;
            }
        }
    }

Bye... :)

What do you mean a buffer? A 2 dimensional array of colors?

:) I have the image in a byte array for exemple...with other words I've got the file in memory not in another storage media(HD)

You need to use the MemoryImageSource class to create an image and then you can do with the Image whatever is possible in Java.
This is achieved like this:

import java.awt.image.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.applet.*;

public class MyApplet extends Applet{

public Image createImage(int [] pixels,int width, int height){
   return this.createImage(new MemoryImageSource(width,height,pixels,0,width))
}


}

You can then display it in the usual manner with:


public void paint(Graphics g){
  MyImage image = createImage(myBufferImage,width,height);
  g.drawImage(image,0,0,this);
}
