Hello Everybody...
I am developing an application where a user can upload a file ..have it processed and then download it back.. However i want the download path to be specified in the interface i am developing and not give it when the popup for the "SAVE DOWNLOAD" appears... so that in a sense the download is transparent to the client.... IS this possible?



P.s. I did do a search in the forum ... but all i got was how to download a file... that i have already done


any help would be appretiated

I think you can only set the default download path in the download dialog box. For security issue, it is not safe to allow a file to be downloaded to client's computer transparently.

Thanks for the reply....
just out of curiosity i wanted to know if it would be possible to use a filter (never used one before)...so as to block the response and send back my own path to the servlet so that it can proceed with the download...

Thanks
