Using thumbnail images in jsp?
Posted on 2006-05-16
In my java web application, I will have a number of images stored on the server and wish to display these as thumbnails in a .jsp. Allowing the user to click on the thumbnail to display the full-sized image in a new browser window.
The number of images on the server will be increasing on a regular bases.
I was trying to plan how to approach this, and wondered if anyone could offer some advise?
With the image number increasing on the server, should I thinking of creating a permanent thumbnail of each and display these in the jsp. Even though creating a thumbnail can be an expensive exercise.
Are there other approaches? Should I be limiting the number of thumbnails displayed on each page?
