Hi,

The scenario is as follows.
#1) After logging in to the web appln the user edits/creates a profile.
#2) This info is then fed into a Stored procedure which returns a ref cursor.
#3)A resultset is obtained from the cursor and then i iterate through the resultset.The contents fetched from the resultset(String) should then be written onto the directory specified by the user in step 1 on the user's machine.

Can you please suggest a way out for this.I have no clue as to how i get a handle to the user's machine even if I am equipped with his host information.I can write into a file on the server itself but i am lost when it comes to writing into a file on another machine on the same network.
I have the host info from the request object.


Thanks & Regards
Chetan

Please don't post the same question to multiple threads. You're up to three forums (mods: I/O and Sockets are the other two) for this post, and that tends to make people less likely to help you. It also makes the discussion hard to follow.

what is the purpose of putting the info on the clients machine directly why not give them the option to download?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
