I have problem while sending the data on mobile client. This is happing when I sending file(audio, image or video) of size 2 or more MB.
The exact exception is here

INFO 07 Jan 2009 13:20:03,593 ( - error in writing file on stream

if file size is less then the 2MB then file send successfully. Sir can you help me in this type of error. File reading and sending code is here.

byte[] fileInArray = null;
fileInArray = readFileByte(fileUrl);
OutputStream outStream = new GZIPOutputStream(response.getOutputStream());
output.write(fileInArray); // got exception here
}catch(Exception e){


public static byte[] readFileByte(String filePath) throws FileNotFoundException, IOException
FileInputStream fileInputStream = null;
byte[] contentByte = null;
File contentFile = new File(filePath);
int contentSize = (int) contentFile.length();
fileInputStream = new FileInputStream(contentFile);

contentByte = new byte[contentSize];;

return contentByte;

Please do not post the same question more than once. It wastes people's time when multiple conversations take place.
