Problem running Servlet

Whenever i try to run the following servlet i dont the get output in the current window, instead it displays the following message "Do you want to save?". Each time i need to save to a local folder, double click and open it with the internet explorer. I am using Tomcat5.5.



All the servlet does is take a string and vertically transpose, and display it as an image. Can anybody give the reason as to why this is happening?

How about if you click any image link from your browser? Does it ask to save? I mean, is it asking to save the url below?

I think the proper content type is "image/jpeg", not "image/jpg".
