Go to http://simple.souther.us.
Download, deploy, and run SimpleStream.war

There is code in there that streams images from the WEB-INF directory to the client. That should get you started.

If you need to stream files that reside outside of your webapp, you may want to use a BufferedFileReader. The example uses a ServletOutputStream (which will work well if the app is being run from an unpacked war file).
