Subject RE: storing images
Date Fri, 06 May 2011 01:26:12 GMT

achieved if you correspond the userid-imageid parameter with the acquired image identifier
?code=1.1 puts user1 image 1 on servlet and returns <img src=servlet?get=1.1>
 ?code=1.2 puts user1 image 2 on servlet and returns <img src=servlet?get=1.2>
 ?code=2.1 puts user2 image 1 on servlet and returns <img src=servlet?get=2.1>

are you using XMLHTTPRequest for ajax ?
