    For better help sooner, post an SSCCE demonstrating exactly what you're doing. If you're having trouble displaying more than one image, your example should be code that tries to show two images.

    The code you posted is impossible to debug. It's too small of a window into what you're actually doing, and it includes stuff that has nothing to do with your problem. That's why I asked for an SSCCE. Isolating the problem is a fundamental skill to have when programming, and half the time you'll find the problem yourself during the process of creating the SSCCE. If you provide that, I'd be happy to help. This is a technical forum, so we don't have a lot of room for tantrums and whining. It's up to you how to proceed from here.

    When posting code, please use the highlight tags to preserve formatting. Also, I recommend using standard naming conventions- classes start with upper-case letters, methods and variables start with lower-case letters.

    And like I said, the name of the game is "isolating the problem". Which part of this is breaking? Reading from the database, or displaying the images? Can you read images from hardcoded file paths? Can you display those hardcoded images, without trying to load from a database? Separately, can you load from a database without displaying the images? You have to isolate the problem down to its smallest piece. That's why it's recommended that you code one small piece of your program at a time instead of trying to code the whole thing at once and then hoping for the best.

    So I would say your next step is to isolate the problem: which part is giving you trouble, loading from the database or displaying images?

    Here you are not creating 1 image for each record .... you have "exausted" the record set and then after, at the end, you create 1 image.
    So what can you expect from a similar code?

    If you have 1 image in each record, then create the image for each record. That is, into the loop. Not outside.

    No. You need to understand how scope and assignment works. For example:

    int x = 0;
    for(int i = 0; i < 10; i++){
       x = i;
    }
    System.out.println(x);

    According to your code, x should print 0-9, which obviously isn't true.

    Each time the bytes for an image are stored in the image array, the code must make an image from those bytes. Otherwise only the bytes for the last image are in the image array when an image is made from those bytes. All the previously read bytes are gone.

    That's the spirit!

    Instead of giving up, trace through your program logically. Let's say your results are ImageOne, ImageTwo, and ImageThree.

    You get the first result, then set image equal to ImageOne. You then loop and set image equal to ImageTwo. Then you loop again and set image equal to ImageThree. Notice that you haven't done anything with ImageOne or ImageTwo!

    You then exit the loop and do something with image, which is still set to ImageThree. Your question is about why ImageOne and ImageTwo are being ignored, and the answer is because you are ignoring them.

    That's why I asked you to break down your problem: your first problem has nothing to do with displaying images, and has only to do with fetching results from a database. Even simpler than that, your problem is with scope and assignment, which we've explained a couple of different ways now.

    I can't stop you from giving up, but the act of narrowing down your problem and focusing on one small piece at a time *is* programming. I recommend starting with a smaller program, maybe one that just gets a List of results from a database and prints them out?

    What does the code do with the contents of the image array after it is given a value inside the loop?
    The contents of the image array is what is needed to create an Image object with the createImage() method.

    Can you describe in English what the program should do with the bytes it reads into the image array in posts #7 and #19?
    Every time around the loop a new set of bytes is read into the image array.
    What needs to be done each time some bytes are read into the array?

    I have no idea what the posted code in #21 has to do with your current problem.

    i am makin a match game,in order to do that i have been trying to add image to my sql database which i have completed, those images which are in the database i would like them to be on a jframe in jlabels and have buttons on top so so i click the button the image shows under, and u press another button and the image shows if they match they stay up right if not go back to nomal.

    The problem i have i was able to get the code working for displaying 1 image but i cnt do more than 1.. i need 20 images to be displayed from the database

    Right now work on making images from the bytes returned by the getBytes() method. Save working on the other details for later. Work on One problem at a time.

    Can you describe in English what the program should do with the bytes it reads into the image array in posts #7 and #19?
    Every time around the loop a new set of bytes is read into the image array.
    What needs to be done each time some bytes are read into the array?

    How many times does the code go around the while() loop? Add a println() statement inside the loop so you can see how many times the loop is executed.
    That will tell you how many images are being returned.
