If I get you right, you want to load the GIF from the database instead of from a file. Images are getting loaded by FOP using URLs. Ok, then you have to create a new protocol handler so you can fetch the image using an URL such as myimages://mydb/id76723644, for example, where myimages is your custom protocol, mydb your database and id76723644 the id of the images in the database. Your protocol handler will then establish a connection to the database lookup the id of the image and return the InputStream on the blob in openStream(). There's a good tutorial on how to create such protocol handlers: http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/onlineTraining/protocolhandlers/ Good luck!
