Can anybody tell me when it's the best time to modify the response header.

I have got a controller servlet which redirects the request to certain jsp's or other servlets.

In the controller I want to modify some
response header information.
I'm using the sendRedirect and forward methods. Thanks

As the headers that will be written back to the client can be seen as a part of the response, it's better not to do this in your controller.

if you use a clean MVC approach, your controller will only do the redirects and forwards.

The servlets to which the request is directed will then write the headers and the content!
