I've created a servlet which allows user to download a generated file (only two types of files: xml and xls). Servlet works perfectly on FF, Chrome, and Opera, but on IE8, when client calls window.open, a new window appears and diaspaears in a moment, just flush. I've done some research and find out that this is a common problem and can be solved by one of the following versions of doGet method. But none of those works with xml and xls files. I'm out of any ideas.
Here are methods found during research, all of them works on commonly used browsers but not on IE8
Do You have any idea?
