Thanks for your reply !

Unfortunately using the Database Reader is not an option as our database is
an IDMS non-relational database.

We developed a photo-generator that worked fine for the HTML but it had
trouble closing the stream when used with Fop.

Getting the images from DB should work with the DatabaseReader (or in 
the same way as you did it for HTML).
Using the images with FOP is not that easy as relative paths don't work:
You have to absolutize them.
