Oracle Multimedia Servlets and JSP Java API enables users to write Java applications using Java servlets and JavaServer Pages (JSP). Oracle Multimedia Servlets and JSP Java API is a component of Oracle Multimedia, a feature designed to manage multimedia content within Oracle Database.

Oracle Multimedia enables Oracle Database to store, manage, and retrieve media data in an integrated fashion with other enterprise information. Oracle Multimedia extends Oracle Database reliability, availability, and data management to media content in Internet, electronic commerce, and media-rich applications.

Note
In Oracle Database 11g Release 1 (11.1), the name Oracle interMedia was changed to Oracle Multimedia. The feature remains the same, only the name has changed. References to Oracle interMedia were replaced with Oracle Multimedia, however some references to Oracle interMedia or interMedia may still appear in graphical user interfaces, code examples, and related documents in the Documentation Library for the current release of Oracle Database.

Oracle Multimedia Servlets and JSP Java API provides the following classes to facilitate retrieving and uploading media data from and to Oracle Database.

Classes
OrdHttpJspResponseHandler Retrieves media data from a database and delivers it to a browser from a JSP page.
OrdHttpResponseHandler Retrieves media data from a database and delivers it to a browser from a Java servlet.
OrdHttpUploadFile Provides access to the contents of uploaded files and optionally loads the contents into a database.
OrdHttpUploadFormData Provides access to form-data parameters and files for form-based file uploading using HTML forms.
OrdMultipartFilter Filters the servlet request to parse the multipart/form-data encoded data.
OrdMultipartWrapper Wraps the servlet request to provide transparent access to form-data parameters and files for form-based file uploading using HTML forms.

The OrdHttpJspResponseHandler class facilitates the retrieval of media data from the database, and its delivery to a browser or other HTTP client from a JSP page.

The OrdHttpResponseHandler class facilitates the retrieval of media data from the database, and its delivery to a browser or other HTTP client from a Java servlet.

The OrdHttpUpload File class facilitates the handling of uploaded files by providing an API that applications can call to load media data into Oracle Database.

The OrdHttpUploadFormData class facilitates the processing of POST requests using the multipart/form-data format. Form-based file uploading using HTML forms encodes form data and uploaded files in POST requests using this format. The OrdHttpUploadFormData class parses the POST data and makes the contents of regular form fields and the contents of uploaded files readily accessible to Java servlets or JSP pages.

The OrdMultipartFilter class filters form-based, file-upload servlet requests whose contents are encoded in multipart/form-data format. This class wraps a request object with an OrdMultipartWrapper object that parses the content. When used with the OrdMultipartWrapper object, the OrdMultipartFilter class provides transparent access to the parameters and files in the servlet request with multipart/form-data encoding.

The OrdMultipartWrapper class wraps the HttpServletRequest object and provides access to the contents in the HTTP request that is encoded using multipart/ form-data encoding. This class provides access to the text-based form field parameters and the uploaded files.

Oracle Multimedia also provides Oracle Multimedia JSP Tag Library, a custom JavaServer Pages (JSP) tag library that lets users generate multimedia HTML tags in JSP pages and upload multimedia data into Oracle Multimedia objects. Oracle Multimedia JSP Tag Library is an extension of Oracle Multimedia Servlets and JSP Java API that simplifies retrieving and uploading media data from and to Oracle Database in multimedia JSP Web applications. (See Oracle Multimedia JSP Tag Library Guide, which is available from the Oracle Multimedia Web page of the Oracle Technology Network Web site at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/multimedia/index.html.)

Users of Oracle Multimedia Servlets and JSP Java API should be familiar with SQL, PL/SQL, Java, Java Database Connectivity (JDBC), and Oracle Multimedia.
