When I am downloading a file, the file is being shown in binary form in the browser, instaed of getting a windows download dialog box.

Thanks in advance to the responders.

1. what is the file type you are downloading?

2. what is value you are assigning to content-type header?

contenet type:
is dynamically set. when a file is uploaded, formfile object is used to get the content type and is used for setting the content type.

content header:
response.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachmnet:filename="+fileName);

my guess is that, content-type and the file type is conflicting each other.

This is probably a Red Herring, but you misspelled "attachment" in your header value.
