Hi Experts,

Upload files to server and then resize it, it's easy to achieve. I've done it already by .net.  My boss wants to resize it on client side, and do the multi upload as well, then upload to the server. My boss said  he wanted to save not only bandwith but also improve upload speed for end users He wants to use java applet/flash on the client side, because it's cross browser support. He believes it's achievable, and that's why I'm asking this question. Some experts said it's not achieable by flash. But I found a software written by java applet, which can resize image at client side then upload to the server. Here is the demo website: http://upload.thinfile.com/image/demo.php

Has anyone got any ideas about it?

Regards,
Lijunguo

It's not the applet, it's the code that you use to resize, and that's applicable in any program.

   /**
    * Resizes an Image by stretching it to a new size by x factor and y factor.
    *
    * @param picture the initial image.
    * @param xFactor the width stretching factor.
    * @param yFactor the height stretching factor.
    * @return the stretched image.
    */
   public static Image resize(Image picture, double xFactor, double yFactor)
   {
      BufferedImage buffer;
      Graphics2D g;
      AffineTransform transformer;
      AffineTransformOp operation;

      buffer = new BufferedImage
      (
         picture.getWidth(null),
         picture.getHeight(null),
         BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_ARGB
      );
      g = buffer.createGraphics();
      g.drawImage(picture, 0, 0, null);
      transformer = new AffineTransform();
      transformer.scale(xFactor, yFactor);
      operation = new AffineTransformOp(transformer, AffineTransformOp.TYPE_BILINEAR);
      buffer = operation.filter(buffer, null);
      return(Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().createImage(buffer.getSource()));
   }

;JOOP!

where do you put that code in? You put it in a jsp page or a serverlet page? Or an applet page. If it's not in a applet page, you are processing the image from the server side, not the client side. I've already done everything from server side with .net, such as resizing, get thumbnails, what I need is to do it on end user's machine. In their machine's memory, resize it, then upload it to the server. Not resize from the server.

In your case you put that code into an Applet, in the method that responds
on a mouse click or other command that requests the resizing.
It is also possible that the code is added to the code that accepts an image
and prepares it for transmission.
