I currently use Oracle web application server. A DAD is Oracle web server's Data Access Descriptor
that is set up in the above web application server. I am using pl/sql web toolkit in the remote Oracle DB.

The applications are accesed on the web using url like below
http://testco.domain.com/DAD/testapp.

in the above URL, testapp is a Oracle stored procedure which uses pl/sql web toolkit.
---
The table from which I am trying extract the image (stored in the BLOB) is like this
desc test_image
 Name                                      Null?    Type
 ----------------------------------------- -------- ----------------------------
 IMAGE_NAME                                         VARCHAR2(30)
 IMAGE_CONTENT                                      BLOB
--
The stored procedure which I use to display this image in the web looks like this
--
create or replace PROCEDURE testapp  IS
  v_blob  BLOB;
  v_amt   NUMBER := 30;
  v_off   NUMBER := 1;
  v_raw   RAW(4096);
BEGIN
  SELECT image_content
  INTO   v_blob
  FROM   test_image;

  Owa_Util.Mime_Header('image/jpeg');

  BEGIN
    LOOP
      Dbms_Lob.Read(v_blob, v_amt, v_off, v_raw);

      Htp.Prn(Utl_Raw.Cast_To_Varchar2(v_raw));
      v_off := v_off + v_amt;
      v_amt := 4096;
    END LOOP;
  EXCEPTION
    WHEN NO_DATA_FOUND THEN
      NULL;
  END;
END;
/
-------------
http://testco.domain.com/DAD/testapp does not show the image properly.
It shows the broken image.

Any input welcome.

Let me start off by first saying I've never used the web app server.  I'm just here from the moderator's request.

My guess is it's the cast_to_varchar.  I stumbled across a different function.  Not sure exactly what it does but it sure looks good.

try changing:
Htp.Prn(Utl_Raw.Cast_To_Varchar2(v_raw));
to
Htp.Putraw(v_raw);
