Just wondering about the relevance of response.flush() and close();
Does it help the
container/client browser behave by ensuring you have a flush() or a close() after a servlet has done its main business?

I think it is best to let the container handle the stream unless you have a good reason to intervene.

There is an autoFlush attribute you can set on the page context to handle this.
In general, though, you only call flush() if you need to send user data during a long running process that has not completed yet. Other than that, you don't have to worry about it.
