Subject RE: CSV File "Save as" dialogue defaults to HTM file
Date Mon, 25 Jan 2010 17:52:43 GMT
Pid -
Would adding the following mime-mapping to the web.xml file help?
There is no mapping for ".csv" in the Tomcat default web.xml file in the
conf directory.
I seem to remember addressing a similar problem many, many moons ago for
our app by adding those lines.

Are you setting the "Content-type" header to "text/csv", or are you just

generating it with a JSP?

The latter will automatically set text/html as the content type.
