The simple way to do that is just to write the output to the response and write the appropriate headers to specify that the response is a PDF file and not HTML. It's even simpler if you do it in a servlet and don't have all the JSP overhead confusing things. Especially since JSP is for generating HTML and you don't want to generate HTML.

I don't get what your Javascript was supposed to be doing... it seems to be trying to open a file on the client's computer, but that doesn't make any sense at all. But that doesn't matter because Javascript isn't the solution here anyway.
