Has anyone encountered this problem before? I'm trying to render a PDF document through the browser. It's working fine in Firefox, but i get an "IE cannot display the page" error page. Here's my code:

String xml = "<PdfBean/>";
StreamSource xmlSource = new StreamSource(new ByteArrayInputStream(xml.getBytes()));

InputStream is = new
StreamSource xslSource = new StreamSource(is);
TransformerFactory tfactory = TransformerFactory.newInstance();
Transformer transformer = tfactory.newTransformer(xslSource);

FopFactory fopFactory = FopFactory.newInstance();
FOUserAgent foUserAgent = fopFactory.newFOUserAgent();

ByteArrayOutputStream out = new ByteArrayOutputStream();

Fop fop = fopFactory.newFop(MimeConstants.MIME_PDF,out);

// perform transformation
Result res = new SAXResult(fop.getDefaultHandler());
transformer.transform(xmlSource, res);

//Prepare response

//Send content to Browser

Please be sure to use code tags when posting code to the forums. Unformatted or unindented code is extremely hard to read and many people that might be able to help you will just move along to posts that are easier to read. Please click this link ⇒ UseCodeTags ⇐ for more information.

Properly indented and formatted code greatly increases the probability that your question will get quicker, better answers.

Even i face the same issue. Iam not getting error. It just that nothing is opened. This happens in both IE and chrome. I did not test in firefox. Please let me know if your issue is resolved. If so what was the cause? If you could reply it would really help me in solving my issue.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
