Amit,
Do you mean a streaming download of the format:


Note that this only works for some file formats. Others, such as PDF, require knowing the full length of the file for header info before outputting anything.

This is for the server part. Or do you mean on the client?

Amit,
In that case, the key is to get the data to display in a loop, flushing at the end of each part so the browser gets the data.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
