saving an image via an url
Hello. I am a newbie to Java, so please bear with me.
I am working on an image app. What I have achieved is to load an image, affect it (brightness, scale etc) and then save it to the local HD as a Jpg... no problems and I am impressed with the way Java deals with this.
Now I am trying to save the image via an URL, or upload it to a server via the http proxy. I have managed to communicate over http, but am having problems sending an image.
I have seen posts here where an image is loaded over an url, but written via one. Code follows.
this code is saving to the HD no problem:
This is the code I have tried to write the image, but I am sure I am missing something as I am not creating a file, just trying to output to the stream... which I am sure is wrong:
FileOutputStream fo = new FileOutputStream("myImg.jpg");
BufferedOutputStream bo = new BufferedOutputStream(fo);
ImageIO.write(destination, "jpeg", bo);
//destination is a buffered image
thanks for taking the time to read this post, hope someone can point me in the right direction.
URL url = new URL( "http://127.0.0.1/testing/javaUpload/myImg.jpg" );
HttpURLConnection urlcon = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection( );
ImageIO.write(destination, "jpeg", urlcon.getOutputStream());
//destination is a buffered image.
At the first look, I would say that you need to flush the BufferedOutputStream.
Without this, the data stays within the buffer till the stream fills out. Perhaps, in your case, this is what the problem is.
If this doesn't work, I will look at this in more detail.
image via url
Hello, thanks for taking the time to read my post.
The first code section works fine, with the bufferedOutputStream, this is saving the image to the HD not a problem here.
The problem I am having is with the second code section where I am trying to save a file to a server.
Any pointers would be appreciated... cheers again for reading.
