Subject Re: Outputing a file to user (correctly getting ahold of the getOutputStream method)
Date Fri, 10 Nov 2006 08:33:36 GMT

Hi,

it is not much difficult: First the URL to servise is http://your.server/your.app.context/app?service=pdf_report&pdf=xx

where the pdf_report is the name of the service and attribute pdf specified what report to
return (you can use any
attributes you want and need).

Then you create the service:

public class PdfReportServise implements IEngineService {
   protected HttpServletResponse response;
   protected LinkFactory linkFactory;

   public void setResponse(HttpServletResponse response) {
      this.response = response;
   }

   public void setLinkFactory(LinkFactory linkFactory) {
      this.linkFactory = linkFactory;
   }

   public String getName() {
      return "pdf_service";
   }

   public void service(IRequestCycle cycle) throws IOException {
      ... first parse you parameters ...
      ... generate the report or open the file with report ...
      response.setHeader(...); eg. Content-Disposition ...
      response.setContentType("application/pdf");
      try {
         OutputStream os = response.getOutputStream();
         ... write your data ...
      } catch (IOException e) {
         throw new ApplicationRuntimeException(e);
      }
   }

   public ILink getLink(boolean post, Object parameter) {
      Map params = new HasMap();
      params.put("param1", (String) ((Object[]) parameter)[0]);
      ... put all parameters ...
      return linkFactory.constructLink(this, post, params, false); //the last false means
not to add jsessionid, true
means add if appropriate
   }

}

Then you can use in template:

<a href="" jwcid="pdfReport">Get the report</a>

and in page specification:

<component id="pdfReport" type="serviceLink">
   <binding name="service" value="literal:pdf_report"/>
   <binding name="parameters" value="{'...'}"/>  <!-- create the parameters for service
-->
</component>

I hope i didn't miss anythink ...

To add the service into application add to your hivemind.xml (If you have none create it in
META-INF directory):

<module id="your.package" version="1.0.0">
   <service-point id="PdfReport" interface="org.apache.tapestry.engine.IEngineService">
      <invoke-factory>
        <construct class="instance:your.package.PdfReportService"/>
      </invoke-factory>
   </service-point>
   <contribution configuration-id="tapestry.services.ApplicationServices">
      <service name="pdf_report" object="service:your.package.PdfReportService"/>
   </configuration>
</module>
