    Unhappy Image reading from URL problem

    I have an image that I need to read from a URL.
    However, I want to make it so that this can be interrupted anytime I want, even if it's in the middle of reading an image, for performance reasons.
    I am using ImageIO.read(), which seems to be a blocking operation.
    Is there any solution that can fix this problem?
    thank you

    Do you want to be able to interrupt the download or the conversion?

    For the former you can first read the data into a ByteBuffer or similar in chunks, then call ImageIO.read() on a stream from the buffer once all the data has been downloaded.

    yep, it's a download
    thank you :)

    I will try this solution.
    Just 1 question, though
    How would I get a stream from the buffer?

    ByteArrayInputStream and ByteArrayOutputStream can be used with just a regular byte[].
