Hi - I have to create a .csv from the data in the database and the user should have the option to download the file on the fly when it is created. I dont want to save the file in the server. I'm trying to find a way to do this. If anyone have any idea please help.

Thanks in advance, Chimbu.

read the contents from database and store it....

call the following method from your servlet doPost/doGet method

//file contents are set in previous jsp and this servlet is called
HttpSession session = req.getSession();
// read the contents from byte arrary previously stored
byte []fileContents = (byte[])session.getAttribute("fileContents");
if( fileContents != null ){

res.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename="
+ "SDiffLic");

// Send the file.
OutputStream out = res.getOutputStream();
