I am developing a web site in which we have a button "Download" in a document, which downloads that document and stores on the clients machine. If anybody has done this earlier or anybody has idea about this please help me.

Hi Prashant,
Check This Code Out
class filecopy
static FileInputStream fin;
static FileOutputStream fout;
public static void main(String args[]) throws IOException
int i;
fin=new FileInputStream(args[0]);
fout=new FileOutputStream(args[1]);
catch(Exception ex)
System.out.println("File is Being Copied. Pl. Wait ....\n\n\n\n");
if(i != -1)
fout.write((char) i);
while(i != -1);
This program is for copying a file to another name using streams. See if the code solves your problem.
Note : The names of the files are got as arguments in this program.
Post your results back here.

I agree. Here's the link:
