Hi ALL
I have a word file on the server side. There is a servlet which sends the file to the server side. I first set the content type of the response to application\ms-word.
Then i copy the file contents in the response but still on the client instead of opening the Word Plugin in the browser or prompting the user for file save it prints junk characters.
WHat should i do ?

See the response from yongsing.
   response.setContentType("application/msword");  

In addition, the browser on the client should also be properly configured to open Word with the above mime type. If using Netscape, you can see this under Edit/preferences/Applications. This is generally the configuration. If it doesnt have this mime type mapped, it would prompt with the "open with/save" dialog.
