Initially that was what i was doing trying to do, to write to ServletOutputStream from the response object. But i kept on getting "Writer already retrieved error", so i used FileOutputStream instead. But finally i figured out why i was getting the error while using response.getOutputStream(). So myster solved . Thanks
