Subject AW: Servlet context and returned files
Date Mon, 09 Oct 2000 15:12:20 GMT
It is more a matter of your browser: 

He doesn't read the arguments to your 
servlet. (IE and NS are like twins
in this case)
To changed the behaviour you have to
change your application in a way, that
the browser doesn't see parameters but
real URL's: /MyServlet/MyFile.pdf

There are several ways to
accomplish this: 
 - With apache use mod_rewrite to
   translate /MyServlet/MyFile.pdf to /MyServlet?name=MyFile.pdf
 - Use tomcat to map all request for /MyServlet/* to /MyServlet
   and parse the requested URI get the file name
