Gwt RequestBuilder + Servlet issue

Posts: 16

I am using a RequestBuilder object from Gwt to send a innerHtml string from a panel to generate a PDF report in the servlet

SomeWhat like this:
RequestBuilder rb = new RequestBuilder("RequestBuilder.POST","URL");
rb.sendRequestData ("Some String");

So the servlet is some class which extends HttpServlet.

I am able to see that the Request is invoking the Servlet , but some how it is neither opening an inline window or any attachment.
And there are no exceptions caught at the console. Can you please suggest me how to go about it

Many thanks for the time

Praveen. R

Try using Anchor to invoke the servlet

RequestBuilder calls may not work if you want to display an attachment/open a document inline. Try anchor/ last one you will loose GWT state) Also make sure that the headers are correctly set in response.
