I am couldn't download EJB1.1 specification. I am getting a popup as "the document doesn't start with %PDF" as message. Is there any other location the spec is available from which i can download the spec.

Hi Geet,
I have heard of this happening from time to time with downloading PDF files. It may be that the browser is not reassembling the packets in the right order.
The normal suggestions are
  • try to do a download then, leaving your browser window open, test the download. If it failed, try it again.
    (Supposedly the second attempt to download from the same site without having closed the window or navigated elsewhere, sometimes works).
  • try a different browser
  • try a different ISP


  • By the way - for download, read "choose to save the file directly to disk - don't try to view it inside your browser".
    Good luck.
    Regards, Andrew
