3. Use taglib in replacement of image tag.

We have created one portlet and integrate adaptive media on it. So We have used adaptive media taglib for all portlet images.

In our portlets, we are displaying selected images. For displaying images we need to add taglib in jsp so, we have added taglib in view.jsp. You can check in the below image.

Apart from that, we need to fetch fileEntry and use taglib to display images. Below you can see that we are using an adaptive media tag instead of img tag.
