Serving files with struts action

Hello,
I would like to use a struts action to serve file, in a way that could be possible to write something like that:
<a href="http://somehost:8080/serve_file.do?file=lallero.zip">Some file</a>
How could an action do some sort of tunneling and response directly to the client without forwarding, setting the correct mime-type and so on?? In a word, I would like to use an action instead of a plain servlet.
Any examples?
Thank in advance.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
