How to determine contentLength

I need to use the response.setContentLength() method in my servlet, but I'm not sure how to determine the content length of the actual data I will be sending. I'm working with a basic struts app.

Any ideas?

I am confused. Can't you just check the length?

If you write the data into a ByteArrayOutputStream first, you will be able to use the resulting size() and then write the buffer to the response output stream.

See the java.io package javadocs for details

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
