Hi All,
I am dynamically generating a PDF file. I am able to view that file when I visit the link. But this is occupying all of the browser's window. I dont want that.
What I want is it should be displayed as a part of webpage. That is my web page can contain other text also.
How can I accomplish this.

Thanks
Vivek.

The solution that immediately leaps to mind is to load the pdf into a frame/iframe on your html page.

That way you can have your page markup, and the document "embedded" in your page.

Thanks Stefan for your response. But can you please tell me how to embed a outputStream which essentially represents a pdf file, in a HTML page/jsp. I tried with embed tag but of no use.


Thanks,
Vivek

He already told you that you can use an iframe element.

Using iframe or frame will solve your problem...
