Hi all,

what i want to accomplish is the following :

1- Download a file using (response.SendRedirect(URL) ). there is nothing wrong in here.

2- Redirect the user to another JSP page to display a thanks message for downloading the file. "Who to Do ??!"

as known i can't use the sendRedirect again because the request is commited.

is there any way to reditrect to the JSP ??
or i should redirect the user to the JSP and in it call the download file servlet ?? "which i don't prefer"


thanx in advance.

What most web sites do is redirect to the "thank you" page FIRST, and have the thank you page redirect the user to the requested file to download via a meta refresh.

A simple implementation of this is:
