java.nio.file.AccessDeniedException: while retrieving image from the system path

Posted by: admin October 29, 2018 Leave a comment

Questions:

I have been storing the image as follows

if(imgString != null )
        {  
        BufferedImage image = null;
        byte[] imageByte;

        BASE64Decoder decoder = new BASE64Decoder();
        imageByte = decoder.decodeBuffer(imgString);
        ByteArrayInputStream bis = new ByteArrayInputStream(imageByte);
        image = ImageIO.read(bis);
        bis.close();

        String realPath  = request.getSession().getServletContext().getRealPath("/resources/images/"+studentDetails.getFirstname()+".png");

        File outputfile = new File(realPath); 


        ImageIO.write(image, "png", outputfile); 
        studentDetails.setStuImg(outputfile.toString());

    }

and trying to get the image from that location as follows

if(imagePath != null)
            {
                    byte[] bytes = Files.readAllBytes(Paths.get(imagePath)); // getting exception here

                    encodedFile = Base64.getEncoder().encodeToString(bytes);

            } 

please look at my stackTrace

how would I avoid this exception or did I miss any thing .

in some post I have read that we need to release that location, if that location had used previously.

if that is the case how and where should i do so ?.

please help me. thank you !.
