i need to display excel sheet values. i am getting illegalstateexception.

iam working on struts frame work.

the jsp page calls the action method

the action class contain method

public ActionForward createMemberExcel(ActionMapping m, ActionForm f, .........ponse) throws Exception{

retrieving data from databse

setting it to stream like this

byte[] blobdata1 = wb1.getBytes();
response.setContentType("application/vnd.ms-excel: xls, xlb: Microsoft Excel Document");
response.addHeader("Content-Disposition", "application; filename="+" MemberExcel"+".xls");
OutputStream out = response.getOutputStream();
int off = 0;
int l = (int) wb1.getBytes().length;
out.write(blobdata1, off, l);

my code is working fine with mozilla browser but when iam using IE browser iam not getting file download manager. please give me your ideas to solve this problem. thanks

Is that it? Basically there are lot of basic coding problems in your code, like exception handling, not closing streams in the finally block etc. Let's keep them apart.

Basically, whst's happening is, this particular method, returns the action mapping. But by the time you reach there, you have already comitted the response by calling the out.write and flush. You can comit the outstrema only once. Hope you got it.


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