I am using struts 1.3.8. I have a simple JSP page with a button, the click of which generates an Excel file. Inside my action class, I write the excel file to response's output stream. I dont want my ActionForward to redirect me anywhere. I just want to stay on the same JSP page that requested for the Excel file.

I tried redirecting my ActionForward to null, but I am getting an exception while doing that. Any thoughts?

I'm not sure what "redirecting an ActionForward to null" means, but you should be able to return null from the action to prevent further Struts processing of the response.
