in my jsp I kept page content type as "application/pdf"

but inside the jsp I have used response.setContentType("images/pdf");

does this cause any problem??

I am able to get image in some browsers and not getting image in some browsers but I am unable to find what are the settings to be used so that the image has to be displayed.

Why are you setting a contentType from within a JSP?
Are you streaming PDFs from them?

If you are really trying to return a content type of ANYTHING except html or text from a JSP you are in for lots of trouble.

Binary content such as images and pdf are best handled from a servlet.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
