how to save image using java?

Hello!

The only way you can store images directly in Access is through OLE objects and you need to specify the BMP file name at the time of setting the object.
I am really not sure if you can actually store an OLE object programmatically from Java into Access.
Another way of doing this is to create a field of type Hyperlink or even a text field to store the file name including path, such as "/images/ravi.jpg." From your java program, upload the file to that path and save the value in the db. While retrieving, you would lookup the full name and then load the image using regular java procedure. If this were to be a web applcation, then you could just create a Image link with this url.

Hope this helps.
