Image decoding from Camera

Hello there,

I have an IP camera and it is scanning barcodes. The camera generates the img file in .bmp format and a XML file and then saves it to a folder. Now I am trying to capture this data from the TCP packet and trying to decode it, to again generate the image and the XML for my software integration. I have attached the output as zip since it contains around 100 text file which i am capturing but the problem is I do not understand where the image file starts and where it ends. You will need to change the txt back to rar to be able to see the contents. EE does not allow me to upload rar files.

For XML I can check <camera> for start and </camera> for end but for image info I am struggling to get bmp. Can somebody please help me.

What I am getting at is that the Package javax.imageio can already work with several formats, including that one :
