I have a jsp web application running on Ubuntu apache server. I take screen shot of different picture and save those in tmp folder of the server. Now I need to show this picture in my web application. How can I show picture in my application from tmp folder?

when I set image source src="/tmp/zzz.png" is not working.

You need to make /tmp accessible to apache. Is saving the screenshot somewhere else an option? – terdon Jul 13 '13 at 14:49

Can't you chose where the screenshot is saved? – terdon Jul 13 '13 at 19:31
yes , I can choose the location like I could save my location like /var/lib/tomcat6/data/images folder but when I save /var/lib/tomcat6/data/images in this location it did not saved. I dont know the problem but I can save in /tmp/ folder. – tetrapack Jul 13 '13 at 22:44
