I want to save the PDF file with the PDF title as name, but its saved as my servlet name.
My servlet ( code as below

String filePath = "C:\report\MyPDF.gzip";
FileChannel fcin = new FileInputStream(filePath).getChannel();
BufferedInputStream bis = new BufferedInputStream( new GZIPInputStream(new BufferedInputStream(Channels.newInputStream(fcin))));
BufferedOutputStream bos = new BufferedOutputStream(new GZIPOutputStream(response.getOutputStream()));
response.setHeader("Vary", "Accept-Encoding");
response.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "inline; filename=MyReport.pdf");
for (int i=0; i<1; ++i)
bytesRead =, 0, bufferSize);
if( bytesRead ==-1 ) break;
bos.write(buff, 0, bytesRead);


While saving my report it is saved as report.pdf
Pls help me regarding this.

Welcome to JavaRanch.

Instead of a disposition of "inline", use "attachment".
