I've uploaded file in DB (Blob field)...and I want to download file using Struts framework...Code that works in Servlet same will run with Action class or its a wrong approach?

Using Struts, what are the approaches for file downloading from database.

You write the data to the output stream and return null as the forward. That indicates to the ActionServlet that you took care of the request already and no further forwarding is required.
