Hi,

I am trying to download a file stored in Database(in a blob).I am just reading it and writing output to outputstream.


I am setting contenttype to "application/ms-word","application/vnd.ms-excel" depending upon the file extension. I am also setting the response header as ""Content-Disposition"," inline; filename=" + FileName

all this together is working perfectly on my xp based laptop. as soon as I moved it to my linux based server,It has stopped functioning. The pop-up for file open/save is not coming.The servlet just shows a blank page,no error at all. I don't know how to fix and what to do..

Thanks in advance, and sorry for the lengthy post...

Hi,
Problem Fixed!!! I checked the other topics related to "File Download" and changed my response header from
"Content-Disposition"," inline; filename=" + FileName
to
"Content-Disposition"," attachment; filename=" + strFileName

and it's working now

I wish I had done this before posting reply...
thanks anyways,
Vrunda
