Downloading files

Hi !
I have a servlet and here is what it does:
-Dynamically builds a J2ME application using Ant.
-Copies some files of the application to /webapps/dload/apps

Next these files have to be downloaded. I want that download should
start automatically. To achieve this functionality I am using
But download does not start. I am geting the following error on browser:
"The web page cannot be displayed..."
However if I just type the URL, download starts. I get that Open/Save As dialog box.
I am trying to download .JAD file. Right now I am just using Internet
Explorer. But in reality a WML page will send request to this servlet and then .JAD file will be downloaded to the cell-phone.
I need some help with this. Thanks in advance.
