Hi,

I like to know How can i download file by flushing the data in the response. As i know how to that i tried by writing the data in the response and sent to the user. I am using struts Framework so i am returning null when i writing the response,However the file is opened in a new window so after saving/canceling the window is not closing. Please let me know how i close the window only if the user click the save button.

Mohammed,
That is how browsers work. Nothing special to do with Struts.

If you open a new window, you need to keep it open. It's possible to close windows that you opened through JavaScript, but you would need to know when the file was downloaded and that the user has decided to save. As far as I know, it is not possible to do either of these.
