Which actions will commit a response ?

Can anyone please provide a list of actions/conditions which will commit a response ? I'm only aware of HttpServletResponse.sendError() and PrintWriter.flush().
Thanks in advance.

you might be including this with the .flush(), but if you output enough bytes to the buffer, then .flush() will be called "for you"... in which case, this also will commit the response.
I agree. Here's the link:
