Subject Re: loading images through a Servlet
Date Fri, 02 Oct 2015 04:45:13 GMT
The servlet that gets the image is the src for the image. The servlet
should return the correct MIME type for the image (image/jpeg, image/png,
etc). Update the src attribute and the image should update. That's how I do
it. However I'm not writing straight JavaScript. You should put your
question to Stackoverflow.
