Old Struts and content-type/attachments

I've got a case where I need to have a website offer a "download results" link (i.e. return non-html dynamically created data). Normally I'd just used a DownloadAction, but the company is using Struts 1.1 (I know) and that feature doesn't exist.

My google-fu has failed me. How did people do this prior to Struts 1.2?

Thanks in advance

Just do it the same way you would do it from a Servlet: Set the headers, Get the output stream from the HTTPServletResponse object and write your data to it. Then just return a null ActionForward from your execute method.
Think of how dumb the average person is. Mathematically, half of them are EVEN DUMBER. Smart tiny ad:
