uploading android image and manipulate it on the server

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I'm building an app that takes android image (captured by device camera) uploading it to server (servlet). In the server i need to work on it as BufferdImage (or any other java class). my problem is that an image in android is represnts as Bitmap object and BufferdImage is not supported in android. The opposite direction is also problem - i can't send the bitmap object to the servlet beacuse java don't supprt Bitmap object. I want to emphesize that I need to work on the image on the server side. Does anyone know how can i solve this problem? Uploading the image to storage server and then use (HowTos)
