I am looking for a way to generate GIF images from my iView.
If I use a regular servlet as a portal component and set the response type to "image/gif", I get an empty HTML page.
Another approach would be to use a normal AbstractPortalComponent. But it seems that an AbstractPortalComponent can only produce HTML/XML/RSS.. output, but no binary format.
To include images as IResources works for static files, but not for Portal Components. Of course it would work to save my image to a file and use that, but I want to avoid that approach.
Has anybody done something like this ?
