I'm trying to create a PDF based on the information that resides on a database. Know I need to retrieve a TIFF image that is stored as a BLOB on a mysql database from Java. And I don't know how to do it. The examples I've found shows how to retrieve it and save it as a File (but on disk) and I needed to reside on memory.
Table name: IMAGENES_REGISTROS
BLOB Field name: IMAGEN
Blob imageBlob = resultSet.getBlob(yourBlobColumnIndex); InputStream binaryStream = imageBlob.getBinaryStream(0, imageBlob.length());
Alternatively, you can call:
byte imageBytes = imageBlob.getBytes(1, (int) imageBlob.length());
As BalusC noted in his comment, you'd better use:
InputStream binaryStream = resultSet.getBinaryStream(yourBlobColumnIndex);
And then the code depends on how you are going to read and embed the image.
