My problem is simple though multiple solutions touch upon it but none address it directly. Hence posting this question.

  1. Problem: I have multiple servlet urls (hosted at external web server) that returns a single image in response stream. My task is to embed images from these (precisely 6) URLs in my drupal site. How can I do that.
  2. Attempts: I tried using Media Module, Embedd Media Module, Custom formatters but none worked for me (may be because I'm a beginner). If anyone can help me with some sort of link of steps to achieve this.

  • Also: "Embed" is a bit ambigious. Are you trying to include them in a WYSIWYG editor as part of content? (Assuming since you mentioned embedding and text formatters). We use WYSIWYG (with CKEditor) + IMCE + IMCE WYSIWYG Bridge. If you have file/image fields as well you can use Filefield Sources to integrate IMCE with those.

I achieved it in a work-around. I am downloading images inside my drupal accessible folders with the fixed names. Updating these images with fixed names using a background script. Applied cache buster techniques so that images with same names are updated.
