I have a requirement in my application that the data displayed on the jsp should be downloaded as .xls and .csv file.
As far as .xls is concerned i can do it by setting the content type. But i have no clue about how to download it to .csv file.
any ideas ?

CSV stands for comma separated values.
So, you can set your content type to text/plain.

Anothe rcommon way to do CSV is to set the page's content type to "application/csv".
