1)        response.setContentLength(10115);
Is 10115 a hard coded number or just there as an illustration. If it is 
hard coded then the content length should be set to the
correct value.
 2)       response.addHeader("ETag","W/\"963288-1194247031062");
Perhaps the missing \" at the end could be a problem?
