Hi experts,

I have been putting jpeg byte streams in BLOBs in my mySQL database...

and now i'm wondering if maybe i should have done some sort of file saving technique instead...

Given that I have access to Java servlets, and i am making an AJAX website,

what is the best way that i can show these images to the website user?
(eg. make temporary files out of the byte streams, and send back the link via XML?)
Thanks
Dan

<img src="http://myserver/getimage.jsp?index=8">
where getimage.jsp modifies the http headers so that it directly sends an image without writing it to the file system...
