opening pdf inline in a new pop up

I am currently trying to display a pdf file inline in a new pop up window and not as an attachment.Following is the serverside code in an Action class in struts.

byte[] content = getByteArray();

try {
ServletOutputStream outputStream = response.getOutputStream();
response.setHeader("Content-disposition","inline; filename=Example.pdf" );
BufferedOutputStream bos = new BufferedOutputStream(outputStream);
} catch (Exception e) {

The pdf opens fine (inline) in the main browser for both mozilla and IE.
when I use the same server side code with the same pdf content in a new pop up window using javascript it works fine in Mozilla(inline) but not in IE (save as attachment pops up and not inline).

Following is the javascript snippet that is being used for pop up.

var page = "<html:rewrite page='/'/>";
var winl = (screen.width - w) / 2;
var wint = (screen.height - h) / 2;
windowprops = "height="+h+",width="+w+",top="+wint+",left="+winl+",location=yes,"
+ "scrollbars=no,menubar=yes,toolbars=yes,resizable=yes";, "Popup", windowprops);

IE version : 6.0.2900
Mozilla Firefox version :
OS : Windows XP Professional

Any pointers would be of great help.

Not sure if this should be posted in servlet forum or javascript forum so have placed it in both.

Thanks in advance.

Please do not cross-post the same question in multiple forums. It wastes people's time when multiple redundant conversations take place.

When unsure, choose one and if it turns out to be incorrect, have a moderator move it for you.
