I'm currently developing a web application using struts 1.3.5 with tiles deployed on XP under tomcat 5.5

I've implemented a download facility to enable users to download
files by clicking on appropriate links. This has been achieved
using the struts file download action mentioned at

StrutsFileDownloadAction

The application works fine, and i can download a number of different
formats including pdf, zip etc.

However Problems arise when I perform stress testing using JMeter.

The following exception is thrown

"java.lang.IllegalStateException: getOutputStream() has already been called for this response"


I have the following settings for Jmeter.

Number of Threads: 1

Ramp-up Period : 1

Loop count : 50

I'd appreciate it if anyone could enlighten me as to what is actually going on.

The code is as follows


A partial stack trace is given below

I've seen situations where this exception is thrown because the download is being done within a tiles template. One way to avoid this would be to make sure a separate window is opened when the file downloads. You can do this by specifying target="_blank" in yor form tag.

Thanks for the swift reply.

I tried this but unfortunately I'm still getting the same error.
I'd appreciate any other suggestions you may have.

Are you using two System.out & creating an OutputStream in your code?

I have seen this as the problem in other forums.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
