Hi,

I have a servlet that i would like to use to output images.

The problem is, when I output the image as a string, it doesnt render ('The image 'http://.../' cannot be displayed because it contains errors).

If i also send the image to a file, I get a renderable image.

This is the code that I am trying to use with no luck:
   response.setContentType("image/gif");
   PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();
   out.println(new String[]{image});

where image is a byte[]. If i look at the source for the page, I actually see the textual representation of the gif.

Any ideas of how to get this to display properly?

Thanks.

You need to do

response.setContentType("image/gif");
OutputStream out = response.getOutputStream();

and write the image to that
