i am sending an email the mail is sent successfully as a sting .In string i write the whole HTML code and that works fine but one thing here to be noted down is i have to send a image and that image is in data base as in blob data and a java file reterieve that image and print it in socket .
i am using the struts for mapping to that path
so when ever i try to write
String strItem +="<img src=request.getContextPath()/show.do?id=1234>" >;
when i do in this way then my the control doesnt go to that file instead of that simple string in which html text and a blank image is sent
so tell me the solution
so that i can send image and text through my mail
Here is my mail code:-- Bold text is to map the struts-config file and write the image to the socket

This is a Struts question, so I'm moving it to the Struts Forum
