Welcome to the Ranch!

It isn't clear what you mean by the "specified" folder. Could you explain that a bit more? Like, who specified it and why don't you know what it is?

Hi Bharat

Welcome to Java ranch !!

Very basic way to download a file is to perform basic I/O. Read a File using FileInputStream and then write that file contents in HTTPServletResponse outputStream.
Sample code is given below

Streaming the files should only be necessary if the files are not in a public directory, or if not everybody should have access to all the files. Is either the case here?

Also, don't ever put IO code in JSPs, that's bad design. That code belongs in a servlet, and then all data required to render the download page should be set as request attributes when the servlet forwards the request to the JSP.
 
No. No. No. No. Changed my mind. Wanna come down. To see this tiny ad:
