I didn`t understand why i got java.lang.IllegalStateException when i didn`t called getWriter() method anywhere in my program... Please help me

PrintWriter pw=response.getWriter();
response.setContentType("text/html");
Connection con=null;
int id=Integer.parseInt(request.getParameter("id"));
int length=0;
String filepath = null;
try
{
Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver");
con=(Connection) DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://localhost/fileupload", "root", "root");
PreparedStatement ps=con.prepareStatement("select file from filetable where id="+id);
ResultSet rs=(ResultSet) ps.executeQuery();
System.out.println("resultset: "+rs);
while(rs.next())
{
filepath=rs.getString(1);
}
File f=new File(filepath);
OutputStream os=response.getOutputStream();
ServletContext context=getServletConfig().getServletContext();
String mimeType=context.getMimeType(filepath);
response.setContentType((mimeType!=null)?mimeType:"application/octet-stream");
response.setContentLength((int) f.length());
response.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment;filename="+filepath);
byte[] buf=new byte[1024];
DataInputStream dis=new DataInputStream(new FileInputStream(f));
if((dis!=null)&&((length=dis.read(buf))!=-1))
{
os.write(buf, 0, length);
System.out.println("download successful");
}
dis.close();
os.flush();
os.close();

}
catch(Exception e)
{
e.printStackTrace();
}

Welcome to JavaRanch :-).

please use code tags while posting code.
You should really move data logic off Servlet probably to DataAccessLayer.

I see that you called response.getWriter(); in first line of code you posted above. You can not use both writer, outputstream together. you can call same method multiple times though.
