Good afternoon,
Hope you all have a pleasant afternoon.

For my school project, i would like to return a PDF file from my file system using a servlet's response.getOutputStream method.
It seems to be very straight forward operation, but somehow it does not work. It gave me an unclear message such as "There is a problem with adobe acrobat reader. Please exit and try again (1014:1014) which i don't understand. I have a good copy of acrobat reader and i don't know why it said that i have a problem with it?

Anyway, here is my code and if you see something wrong , please let me know. I am very thankful of all of your help.

In your Content-Disposition header, you should provide a proper filename for the download. A path isn't a filename. I suggest simply "hello.pdf".
I agree. Here's the link:
