You need to reference somehow the image in the database from an HTML source. It is up to you: you may even implement a repository of InputStreams (which would be a quite strange architectural decision) and refer to them by a unique input stream ID:

In the resource loader you’ll receive “file:inputstream#4711” image URI to be parsed, to select the corresponding input stream and to read the referred image.

But of course a better approach is to specify in the image URI some unique key, sufficient to lookup and to read database image with your custom resource loader.
