You should not even be attempting to do stuff like this in JSP. JSP is for generating HTML pages, not computation and manipulation of output streams.

Save yourself lots of trouble and look into servlet code designed to handle file transfer.

Pushpa,
Are you getting the correct values in sbf?

Are you sure you're not getting an IllegalStateException?
Because I'm pretty sure using getOutputStream inside a JSP page will result in that (at least it used to) as the JSP has already called getWriter to write its own stuff out as pretty much the first thing it does.

Bottom line, you are using the wrong tool.



Move all this code to a servlet as your first step.
