Subject RE: [ABOT] Sending pdf file from webserver to browser?
Date Wed, 17 Jan 2007 09:46:01 GMT
Hi

Looked into some of the old code I had lying around, and remembered that I did this:

			response.setContentType("application/pdf");
			response.setHeader("Expires", "0");
			response.setHeader("Cache-Control",
					"must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0");
			response.setHeader("Pragma", "public");

Hi

This content type is handled differently by various browsers. Some browser will give a choice
saving or opening, while others will open it directly using its pdf plugin. I seem to remember
a solution for was described on the struts mailing list a while back. Try googling for it.
