    First, you have to determine the user's region.

    1. You can use the Google/Microsoft's Geolocation api to get the user's region - Runtime determination of user's region

    2. You can set a locale for the user in UME. The code can read the locale assigned to the logged in user and according behave. - Design time config of user's preferred locale and obtain it

    For option 2: Use the method:

    IWDClientUser loginUser = WDClientUser.getLoggedInClientUser();

    Locale locale = loginUser.getLocale();

    Now, store the images for the regions in a location - server location/central folder.

    Follow the locale naming convention.

    Either create a screen / request admins to maintain images in that folder/location.

    In your application, after determining the user's locale, retrieve the relevant image in the location.

    - To retrieve the image/resource, use the WDResourceFactory and WDURLGenerator.

    Sample: Explore the WDResourceFactory to fulfill this requirement.

    // Receieve the image as file, read into stream and then build the resource and assign it to the image UI element.

    byte[] buffer = wdContext.currentOutputElement().getXstring_Data(); // here am receiving -1, Array Index out of bound exp

    IWDResource resource = WDResourceFactory.createCachedResource(new ByteArrayInputStream(buffer),"JPG",WDWebResourceType.JPG_IMAGE,true);

    • There is no specific path which is ideal but recommended to keep it simpler.

      Also, explore the usage of KM folder to store the images. This way, you avoid the need to have direct access to server. Once you store images in KM folder, make use of KM apis to access the folder and image in KM.

      This makes the job of admin also easier, as they can log onto portal - KM and upload files.
