Subject Problems setting content type to application/vnd.ms-excel
Date Fri, 21 Jun 2002 18:37:46 GMT
I am trying to sent the content type in a portlet doExcelselect method 
using :
        MimeType mt = new MimeType("application/vnd.ms-excel");
//        rundata.setContentType( mt.getContentType() );
//        rundata.setCharSet( mt.getCharSet() );
//        rundata.getResponse().setContentType("application/vnd.ms-excel");
        VelocityPortlet portlet = (VelocityPortlet)context.get("portlet");
        Log.debug("portlet supports type "+portlet.supportsType(mt));

//                implementation junk

        // just before return
        Log.debug("doExcelselect content type is 

The portlet.supportsType() returns true, and the last debug 
rundata.getContentType() returns application/vnd.ms-excel.

Does this logic work?

The idea is to build an html table, set the content type to 
application/vnd.ms-excel, and let the browser show the spreadsheet (I.E) 
or ask for an application (Netscape).

This works in other (non-Jetspeed) servlets, and I am wondering if 
anyone has had success with this, or something like it.
