I have a file with the following headers:

Content-Type=application/download
Content-Disposition=attachment; filename=myDownload.txt

Is there a way I can specify a header to say that the default download directory should be say C:\Temp ?

Thanks for your help

why don't you use init param in servlets to specify the default direcotry?

Following is the code

<init-param>
<param-name>dir</param-name>
<param-value>c:/Temp</param-value>
</init-param>
