    Fisrt, you need to set up a Thumbnail Server (download it from subscribenet) on the Content Server host.

    After that you can issue DQLs like: SELECT r_object_id,object_name,title,thumbnail_url FROM dm_document WHERE ...


    The thumbnail_url computed column will have values (like http://contentserverhost:thmsrvport/thumbsrv/getthumbnail?...) which you can directly insert into image tags like

    <img src="${thumbnail_url}" >

    So the images  will be shown through thumbnail server.

    Thank you at first.

    I got the correct images according to your guide.

    But there is another problem :I want to execute search object action and then get result pagination display.

    I find some DQL language,but I cannot get the result.

    Which is the relative DQL Language?How can I implement that?


    Best regards!

    It depends which framework you are using. Plain JSP with DFC, WDK (Webtop), maybe other web framework with DFS?

    You can limit the number of rows returned by a DQL with adding "ENABLE(RETURN_TOP 10)" but that's not enough for a paginated display. You should code it on the server side, to cache the results and iterate to the right position.

    Case I am a beginner for the WDK and Webtop,I am using plain JSP with DFC framewoek.I also

    didnot understand clearly about that DQL sentence for a paginated diaplay.I find such a

    DQL statement:
    SELECT object_name FROM dm_document ENABLE
    It means the number of rows returned is the least number of rows defined in an included

    hint,Content Server returns 5 rows for the query. All right?
    If I get 100 records through search,It displays 10 records on every page,so It is a total

    of 10 pages. How can I do that?Would you give me a detail  please ?
    If you provide a simple example I appreciate you very much,good guy^_^

    Some new questions else:
    Which interface in DFC can I use to export the media file ?
    How can I preview my media file?

    If you look in the Java sources, XML config files and JSP pages delivered with Webtop and WDK, you'll find a lot of examples about pagination. It's documented in the WDK documentation too.
