I have a byte array of a pdf file. I want to show the pdf in web browser using this byte array.Is there any way to do it.

Any suggestions are welcome.

set the content type ("application/pdf") and content length headers and then just send the bytes.

Note that because a PDF should be considered binary data, you must send the bytes to an output stream from getOutputStream(), not a writer from getWriter().
