I have the same problem. The "src" attribute of "external-graphic" accepts
only "file:....." value not a full URL.

I haven't tested what you do, but I think you should be able to specify
a full URL with parameters and all in the "src" attribute of
"external-graphic" that will call your servlet to get the image. Or do
you get any error messages?
