I have a string of data which is the contents of a pdf, ( as I cannot read the pdf file directly from the web server).
How do I output the data so that the browser displays the pdf as pdf and not as the contents of the pdf.
Any help appreciated.

I believe this has been covered a few times. Use the search capability and you should find your answer.

So essentially your question is how to generate a pdf file from a String of data and display? In the past I have used JClass to generate pdf files. Also, I believe you could use XSLT to transform data into a PDF.

I gather from the wording in his question that the data is already in PDF format. He just needs to set the content-type and disposition accordingly. I don't remember the exact settings off the top of my head. Hence, the search suggestion.
