Think about how a HTML page containing an image is built. Each chart or other image must be the result of a separate IMG tag that you write in your JSP. The SRC= attribute in the IMG tag should point to a servlet that can generate the binary image data.
You can't use a JSP to generate typical image files because a JSP is designed to output text, not binary image data. There have been a number of discussions of this here. Any book on servlets will tell you how this is done.

I have my <img ...> tag point to a servlet which gets a chart using JFree chart (jfree.org), then uses a class included in the Jfree stuff that will display the image with the OutputStream. Display line is something like:
ChartUtilities.writeChartAsJPEG(out,chart,820,380);

The IMG tag in HTML requires a SRC="URL" - the url is used to load the image data. That could be the URL of a servlet plus parameters that might include the name of a dll that is somehow involved. What image source do you want to use?

I believe that a DLL can be used if it implements the ISAPI interface. This of course ties one into the Microsoft platform. Not a great idea, imho.
