  1. public BufferedImage imageReturn(String taskId) throws IOException {
  2. byte[] bytes;
  4. EntityManager em = (EntityManager) Component.getInstance("entityManager");
  5. System.out.println("Task ID : " + taskId);
  7. bytes = (byte[]) em.createQuery("select t.image from Task t where t.taskId = " + taskId).getSingleResult();
  9. System.out.println("bytes---> " + Arrays.toString(bytes));

1.) Create a Servlet and map it's URL to /images/*.
2.) Use the servlet parameters or request.getPathInfo() to get an image id and use that id in the servlet to stream out the image data
3.) Make your graphicImage tag point to your image id e.g

  1. <h:graphicImage value="images/#{bean.imageId}"> 
where bean.getImageId returns the id of the image.
