Dear All,

I m trying to download the xml file from the server. I m able to get the download dialog box and able to download the file on the client browser, the file contains the print statement given in the jsp file. Its not displaying the original content of xml file. Below is the jsp code. I m not getting where its going wrong.

<%@ page import="*,,,,,"%>
String fileName = "forma.xml";
String actualFileName = directory + fileName;
out.println("ACTUAL FILE NAME : " + actualFileName +"<BR>");
InputStream inputStream = null;
try {
response.setHeader("Content-Disposition","attachment;filename=" + fileName );
int sizeRead = 256;
byte[] buf = new byte[1024];
File file = new File(actualFileName).getAbsoluteFile();
out.println("FILE : "+file +"<BR>");
URL url = file.toURL();
inputStream = (BufferedInputStream)url.openConnection().getContent();
out.println("INPUT STREAM ......." + inputStream +"<BR>");
while( (sizeRead = != -1 ){

/*FileInputStream fileinputstream = new FileInputStream(file);
byte abyte1[];
int i = (int)file.length();
byte abyte0[] = new byte;
for(int j = 0; j < i; j +=, j, i - j));
abyte1 = abyte0;
out.println("value of abyte1 :"+abyte1); */
} catch(Exception ex) {
out.println("Exception " + ex.getMessage() +"<BR>");
} finally{
}catch(Exception e){
out.println("Exception in finally" + e.getMessage() +"<BR>");

Thnx in adv.
