How to Detect a File not Found

My following code displays the PDF sent to it but I need to know how to make it work when there is no PDF file found. The code as it is now generates an error:

SRVE0068E: Could not invoke the service() method on servlet /NoPDFfileExists.jsp. Exception thrown : java.lang.IllegalStateException: SRVE0199E: OutputStream already obtained

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
