Hi friends,
How to download a pdf file in the client machine from an applet. The pdf file is located in the server.
That is, I want to open a Acrobat reader , with a file I need, when I click one button in the applet.

Hai Friends,
I got the reply for the above question., by using showdocument with appletcontext.

But, now the problem is, once the acrobat reader gets opened in the browser, its' instance is not getting killed, though the browser is closed. B'coz of this if the same application is opened for the next time, the file is not getting opened.
Help to kill or remove the reader instance from the memory (Task Manager).
Help me urgently.
Friendly yours,
Umamaheswari Sankarlal
