Make a servlet that sets the content type header, sets the Content-Disposition header, loops through your byte array and writes the contents to the servletOutputStream.

Create a hyperlink on your JSP that points to this servlet.

If you want an example of a servlet that streams binary content, I have one on my site.
Look for SimpleStream
