    It seems like what you want is for a user to fill out a 
    form, click submit, then be presented with a new, fresh, 
    form again ... with the file download on the side.  If you 
    have determined that you absolutely want this behavior 
    (it's atypical, so doing it won't be particularly robust), 
    consider programmatically opening another browser window on 
    form submit from which the download will happen ... and 
    reload your form in your "main" browser window.  This will, 
    of course, subject you to any headaches associated with 
    javascipt window opening.

Justin, since I want a basic download, I'd be interested in
what you consider typical please?

I need to offer the user a list of files (I'd thought of a form or list of links)
They select one,
then download it.

What's the tomcat way please?

regards DaveP
