Subject Re: HELP: Use of OutputStream from JSP causes IllegalStateException
Date Mon, 01 May 2000 18:04:07 GMT
This topic comes up now and then.  I'll look into the issues in JSP 1.2,
both from the perspective of clarifying the spec and also on the exact
role of the JspWriter and how to generate things like binary data.  Two
arguments on revisiting this are: tag libraries, and using a JSP to
customize a request before forwarding it to a Servlet.

thanks,
	- eduard/o
