I've created a temporary file for client to download. There is a servlet to load the temporary file and transfer to the client. After that the temporary file should be deleted. It is fine if the client save the download file. However, if the client choose cancel after download file window prompt, then the temporary cannot be deleted. How can i delete the temporary file no matter the client choose save or cancel? Thanks a lot.

Try this order of steps:

1. Read the content of the file into yr bytearray

2. Close all file/io connections with that file.

3. set the content-type of the response.

4. do the writing from the bytearray to the client.

5. reset the array, delete the file.
