This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
In an effort to help you get the most from our forums, we've compiled a list of tips for asking questions here. You can find the list in our FAQ section here. In particular, please see EaseUp to find out how adding the word "urgent" to your posts will usually slow down or stop responses.
Again, welcome to JavaRanch and good luck with your question. -Ben
As to your question: Browsers can't display PDFs on their own. A PDF viewer (such as Acrobat) is needed. Some browsers can embed Acrobat as a plugin and will appear to display your PDF in the browser. To do this, you need to add a Content-Dispostion header with the 'inline' keyword. Search this and the JSP forum with keyword 'Content-Dispostion' for more information. If you're only providing a link to the PDF (as opposed to streaming it with your own code) you may not be able to control what headers are sent.
Hi Ramdas, To display the PDF file in your browser you must have any one of the following things.. 1) Your Desktop must have the (PDF reader like Acrobat) other wise 2) Your Browser must have the plug in to display the .PDF files.
