[nycphp-talk] OT - PHP portlet in Java's Liferay portal

Why are you using JSP (Java servlet pages) alongside PHP?

Either way, your problem is probably related to not sending headers
along with the image. If you're generating the chart, make sure it's
sending mime-type (Content-type) headers before sending the binary PNG
data. Otherwise the browser doesn't know what it's receiving and it
will garble it.

It's been a couple of years since I've written Java applications, but
the relevant PHP function is here:
http://us3.php.net/header
Take a look at Example #1.
