I need to convert a image object to a base64 object so I can load it into the tag on my client side.
However I can't seem to figure out how to pull this off. Is there anyone who has a piece of code for this that I could use easily?
This is what I use to turn the external image link into a image object
Image image = null;
URL url = new URL(request.getParameter("hdn_path"));
image = ImageIO.read(url);
