steps for setting image for Label:

  1. create a image file as follows

    File image = new File("D:\mysample.jpg");

  2. i think you know how to read image data from database.once you get the resultset object do as follows i mean store image column data into above file

    // after getting resultset 
          FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(image);
          byte[] buffer = new byte[1];
           is = resultSet.getBinaryStream("img_clumn_no");
          while (is.read(buffer) > 0) {
          // then close the connection 

3.then set the above image file path to label as follows

   // set the above image path to label as follows 

    label.setIcon(new ImageIcon(image.getAbsolutePath()));

     //or you can put directly 

    your_label.setIcon(new ImageIcon("D:\\mysample.jpg"));

check it once it gives the proper output to your problem or not

happy coding


the problem is i have a table in java when i click a row data srelated to that row will be displayed into the labels.
here is my query

String sql='select ename,img from albums where code='+acode+'';';

img is the image column .how do i write the result set for this
is it .can i use this code

String image=res.getString("img");
but i am not able to display it in the label.
i stored the image in mysql table as the image's path.
