Subject: Re: [Zope] Anyone put Images in Interbase 6 and view via Zope?


Brad,

I think I can provide some information. I have added a jpg to an interbase
table and have successfuly displayed it in ZOPE.  First off you may know
that Interbase does not store BLOB data directly in a table's blob column.
It stores the data elsewhere and then stores a "pointer" to it in the
table column.  This means that BLOB data MUST be inserted via program code
and thus you cannot do the following in a Zope SQL Method:

insert into the_table (blob_column) values (blob_data)

If you are using the gvibDA you can code an external method to do this:

import gvib
cn = gvib.connect(...)
cr = cn.cursor()
cr.execute('insert into the_table (blob_column values (?)', (blob_data,))
cn.commit()
cr.close()
cn.close()


What I did to display the JPG may or may not be legal but here is what I
did.


Code an external method (saveimage) to save the jpg to a temporary file.
My codewas:

    def saveimage(ifile, idata):
        fout = open(ifile, 'wb')
        fout.write(idata)
        fout.close()



Then I coded an SQL Method to select the blob column. My example table has
one row in it.

    select picture from sela  

Then I coded a DTML Method to do the rest:

    <dtml-in selasql>
        <dtml-call "saveimage('/tmp/sela.jpg', picture)">
        <img src="file:/tmp/sela.jpg" alt='sela'>
    </dtml/in

When 'viewed' the reulst is a nice picture of the lovely Sela Ward.  :-)


Good Luck and Regards,

Bob Tierney
