I have a problem here...
I have a jsp file(test.jsp) which has a form (method=post) to call a servlet(test.class) which does file downloading.
It seems that I need to go through the files calling sequence. The downloading needs to go thru test.jsp - test.class - file to be downloaded(manual.pdf) . When I click submit button on test.jsp. A save as window opens... It says whether you want to download test.jsp or not. There are 2 choices.. open from current location/save as. I choose open from current location. Then the save as window still open, only this time it asks you whether to download test.class or not. I choose open from current location. Finally, the same save as window asks whether i want to download manual.pdf (file I want to download).
Anyone knows why please tell me..
Or this is only tomcat bug?
