Hi, this line of code <p:fileDownload value="org.primefaces.model.DefaultStreamedContent@16b122e" />

shows the next error;

java.lang.ClassCastException: java.lang.String cannot be cast to org.primefaces.model.StreamedContent
at org.primefaces.component.filedownload.FileDownloadActionListener.processAction(
at javax.faces.event.ActionEvent.processListener(

┬┐Any clue?

That's a String. You can't put a String there, you have to put something which is of the org.primefaces.model.StreamedContent type. That's what the error message says.

So don't put a String there. Put a StreamedContent thing there.
I agree. Here's the link:
