I am not sure if this is the right forum for this question, but it looked more appropriate than some others.

I am sending a file in a HTTPServletResponse to the client browser. So, I set the content type as follows:
response.setContentType("application/x-octet-stream");
response.setHeader("Content-disposition", "attachment; filename=" + file.getName() + ";");

I also have to send some other data that is not part of the file. Is it possible to do this?

I think you need to send your stuff seperately, you can have a dynamic link point to an url to grab your file and transport the other stuff in the normal way.
