Hi,
My requirement is to get the file content from temporary file and then I am writing to one more file which I created and I need to download the same file. When I am executing the following code , I am able to download the file but I am seeing 10 lines with empty spaces. That means code is writing the conent in the new file from 10th line.Please corerct the code,why its writing content from 10th line in the new file.

Step 1: Move the code out of a JSP and into a Java servlet. Then we can take it from there.

1. Bear is right.

2. JSP generates blank lines everywhere and anywhere it can! that is the nature of the beast.

In this case, lines 1-7 all add one line break before any binary data is written to the response.

Please read this article to find out why using a JSP for this purpose is a big FAIL.
