I would like to display a bitmap (.bmp File) on a jsp page. Servlet is able to read the BLOB from databse and byte stream is written successfully to response.

But at the jsp side nothing get displayed.

In servlet code I have done the outstream.flush();
and res.flushBuffer();
Also stream is closed.

I have tried both following ContentType
res.setContentType("image/x-ms-bmp");
res.setContentType("image/bmp");

At present I am not trying to convert the format to any other but would like to display as the raw data read from the database. Is there any issue in not doing conversion and trying to display bitmap image?

Any suggestion is appreciated.

You mention a servlet and a JSP without describing how they interact. Are you accesing the image-loading servlet from a JSP with the <img> tag?

Bear in mind that few browsers are capable of displaying BMP-formatted images.
