This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi, I think this is not the exact forum to discuss your solution. This is completely for scwcd preparation. Any way, why dont u submit another form/iframe(from same page) onload of the html page, redirecting to the same page and you can set appropriate headers second time to display the popup?

I dont think that you can make this in one round trip. 'content disposition' header can be either be inline or attachment at a time. We cannot have both. Though it is possible to add two values for same header(not sure for what are all header we can add!!), using response in the following way. response.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "inline"); response.addHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment;filename=test.txt"); I guess it is up to the browser whether it can understand/interpret the document as both inline and attachment same time. Atleast my browser(IE 6.0) doesnt understand both at same time. I am not sure which spec defines about interpreting multiple values of header.
