    Default Sending image file over serversocket to browser client

    Hello All,

    I am writing simple web server which accepts requests on socket and sends html text response.
    I am receiving requests from browser on the specified port.
    Now I also want to send small gif files and want to display them on the browser page. The resulting html page will display text combined with gif images at specific positions.
    I am using java ImageIO API for the same. However I am not getting the desired page.

    Here is my sample code on Server side: I am listening to requests on serverSocket 5555

    PrintWriter socketWriter = new PrintWriter(socket.getOutputStream());
    socketWriter.println("HTTP/1.1 " + 200 + " OK");
    socketWriter.println("Server: ICS HTTP Server");
    socketWriter.println("Date: " + (new Date()));
    socketWriter.println("Content-type: text/html");
    socketWriter.println("Content-type: image/jpeg");
    socketWriter.println("Content-type: image/gif");

    socketWriter.println("Content-Length: " + output.length());

    //String output is much more with combination of havascript,html and html tables


    String filePath = c:\images\+ "button1.gif";
    File f1 = new File(filePath);

    ImageInputStream imgStream1 = ImageIO.createImageInputStream(f1);
    long size = imgStream1.length();

    BufferedImage bufferedImage1 =;
    boolean success = ImageIO.write(bufferedImage1,"gif",socket.getOutpu tStream());

    socket = null;

    I will appreciate your help and thanks in advance.
