    Default Read file from database


    Im new to java and new to this forum, so I hope you will be patience with me :)

    What Im trying to do is this:
    I read a file from database, and I need to show this file directly to the user. This file is saved as Blob in Oracle database and I read it in this way:

    String sql = "SELECT image FROM pictures ";
    PreparedStatement stmt = conn.prepareStatement(sql);
    ResultSet resultSet = stmt.executeQuery();
    File image = new File("D:\\java.gif");
    FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(image);

    byte[] buffer = new byte[1];

    // Get the binary stream of our BLOB data
    InputStream is = resultSet.getBinaryStream(1);
    while ( > 0) {

    Now I need to "show" this file to the user but I have no clue how.

    If you can suggest me...any idea will be welcome.

    Thank you in adavnce.

    Use a bigger buffer...that's just a suggestion by the way, and not how to show the picture.

    What are you using as a front end?
