Displaying images from Database?
Posted on 2006-04-23
In my web application I plan to store thumbnail images and the orginal images on a database.
The thumbnail images will be displayed to the user in a jsp page. Could anyone advise, if the thumbnails are stored as type blob on the database. How in the servlet would I change this blob back to a jpg, gif image?
And could anyone advise having displayed the thumbnail images in jsp. When the user clicks on the thumbnail I would like to display the full-sized image, to achieve this would I need to contact the display again to get the full sized image?
