Hi guys,

I am trying to create a pdf(using Flying Saucer) and display it in the browser but i keep getting a blank page. Here's a code snippet :

########

// read XML and convert to pdf
String inputFile = "weather.xml";


ByteArrayOutputStream baos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();

ITextRenderer renderer = new ITextRenderer(900,200);
renderer.setDocument(new File(inputFile));
renderer.layout();
renderer.createPDF(baos);


response.reset();
response.setContentType("application/pdf");
response.setContentLength(baos.size());

ServletOutputStream out = response.getOutputStream();
baos.writeTo(out);
out.flush();

###########

Anyone any ideas ?

Did you try writing the pdf to the file system? Are you able to get the pdf?
