Hi !
I am running a web application that has to create a pdf file from its binary flow.
Here's what I have done :
File ftest = new File("temp.pdf");
FileWriter fw = new FileWriter(ftest);
fw.write(strTemp);
fw.close();
All this works perfectly... but when I call my PDF from a web browser, it doesn't start Acrobat Reader at all, but displays the binary flow.
How can I change this ?
Thanks,

This actually has nothing to do with how the PDF is created, but rather how the browser is set up to handle various MIME types.
I recall seeing this very subject discussed in a previous thread (or perhaps threads).
"Use the search, Luke" and you should be able to locate the previous discussions.
hth,
