Hello
I've a strange problem.
I displaying a directory listing to the user. The user selects a file to be downloaded. The files are of diff formats - txt, csv, xls, pdf, zip
The download works for pdf, txt but for XLS, when I save the file, its has junk.
Any pointer ???

----------------Attached source. It is part of JSP not a servlet

String _fileLocation = "C:/test.xls";

String _fileName = "ttt.XLS";
String _fileType = "application/vnd.ms-excel";

BufferedInputStream bufferedInputStream = null;
File inputFile = new java.io.File(_fileLocation);
int fileSize = (int) inputFile.length();
System.out.println("fileLocation");
System.out.println(_fileLocation);
System.out.println("fileSize");
System.out.println(fileSize);
if (fileSize > 0)
{
FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(inputFile);
bufferedInputStream =
new BufferedInputStream(new FileInputStream(inputFile));
byte[] fByte = new byte[fileSize];
if (fis.read(fByte, 0, fileSize) >= 0)
{
//Committing the
response.setContentType(_fileType);
//response.setContentLength(fByte.length);
response.setHeader(
"Content-Disposition",
"attachment; filename="+ _fileName);
response.getOutputStream().write(fByte);
response.getOutputStream().flush();
response.getOutputStream().close();
}
fis.close();
}
else
{
System.out.println("The report file is empty");
}
-----------------------
Thanks for help

Use Servlets to set the content type instead of JSp and it will work

you will have to set a _fileType according to corresponding file.
For xml/xsl you will have to set it as text/xml
For doc file it is application/msword
For gif file it is image/gif
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
