Hi all,

how I do download a generated data like a file.
I prefer to do it in JSF than JSP/servlet.
When user clicks on the first JSF "download report" button and server should display the second JSF and (popup) dialog window "save or open".


thanks.

I would use a servlet and be done with it. JSF is overkill.

What I do is create a normal <form> using a <f:verbatim> tag. Then form targets _blank and the href is a servlet which gets the report parameters (or can query them from session)

"To a small child with a hammer, every problem looks like a nail."

JSF isn't designed to do file transfers or render reports. It's geared towards UI-type stuff. For what you want, a servlet is simpler.

Just because the UI components of your webapp are JSF doesn't mean you must force everything in the webapp to go through JSF. After all, JSF itself is just a servlet and some support libraries.
