hi all,

i'm having conflicts between a RequestDispatcher.include(...) and a response.getOutputStream() call. what i'm getting is a getWriter() already been called when the second method is called.

i'd like to know if this is a known 'feature' to any of you. perhaps RequestDispatcher.include(...) is 'implicitly' calling the getWriter(). if so, how could i workaround that, in order to succsesfully call response.getOutputStream() afterwards?

i'm using a gzip compression filter (from Jayson Falkner book which looked like beign causing this, but the problem keeps happening even after taking its declaration out of the web.xml.

any ideas are very much appreciated.
