I have to display a file from the server on to the browser. All I have the path of the file. The file may be anything, i.e. of any type.
I am reading the file in to bytestream array and writing that bytestream to the out stream of the response.
The problem here is that I cannot determine the content type of the response. As the file may be of any type i cannot hard-code the content type.
is there any way out of this ?
