reading image from URL


If I execute the following Groovy code

URL url = new URL('http://glowstick.blisstunes.com/wp-content/plugins/rss-poster/cache/e1ebf_josh-wink.jpg') ImageIO.read(url)

I get an exception:

javax.imageio.IIOException: Can't get input stream from URL! at javax.imageio.ImageIO.read(ImageIO.java:1369)

But if I visit the URL in a browser the image displays. Is it because the HTTP request is being blocked because it doesn't look (from the headers) like it's coming from a browser?


Use this:

Image image = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().createImage(url);


Use the below code as reference. Do similar thing .

URL urlTemp ; urlTemp = new URL( ContentUrl); HttpURLConnection ycGetContent = null; ycGetContent = (HttpURLConnection) urlTemp.openConnection(); ycGetContent.setDoOutput(true); ycGetContent.setRequestProperty("Cookie", cooStr); ycGetContent.connect(); BufferedInputStream bins = new BufferedInputStream(ycGetContent.getInputStream()); FileOutputStream fout = new FileOutputStream(lastWord); int m = 0; byte[] bytesIn = new byte[1024]; while ((m = bins.read(bytesIn)) != -1) { fout.write(bytesIn, 0, m); } fout.close(); bins.close(); //System.out.println("File " +lastWord +" downloaded successfully ...\n\n "); LOG.info("File " +lastWord +" downloaded successfully");
