I am calling response.getOutputStream() and initialing it as below in a jsp file.
  ServeletOutputStream sos=response.getOutputStream() ;
   ....
   ...
   sos.write();
   sos.flush();
   sos.close();
I commented out sos.flush() and sos.close() , but always it give that exception
at the end of the jsp page.

one more thing I am not calling response.getWriter().
and there is no out.write("\r\n"); in my jsp converted java file,sombody told like if out.write("\r\n"); will call the response.getwriter();

why you will need to get the outputstream by your own??
in your jsp if there is even a single space somewhere in the  code you will get this exception...
the reason is that system uses the writer to write the output of jsp ( which is eventually total page - java sniplets)..
post your code here and I should be able to help you out with this.

The problem is solved after converting the Jsp into actual java servlet.

Hello Kuldeepchaturvedi, I don't see you suggested the Servlet solution so I considered it better to PQ the question and refund the points. I can infer from your comment that your suggestion actually helped the asker.

is equivelent of either don't uses spaces in the jsp or don'y try to get outputstream because jsp will already have it in writer..
a way around this wd have been converting it to servlet....

which I agree that I didn't say explictly but in my opinion my comments was on the right direction..
but I honor your decision.
Thanks

AFAIK spaces do not have anything to do with the problem but you are right on the second part of your latest comment, the implicit output stream is already obtained in the JSP. I would also have expected to indicate that the user could use the ServletOutputStream from the ServletResponse (response object) instead of the implicit JSP "out" variable.

Bare in mind that loads of people are not very experienced with Java (if they were they would ask a question that looks simple to most of us) and in order to have a better understanding of the mechanics you have to be explicit and sedulous.

Anyway, I do not want to be unfair here. My suggestion is just that, a suggestion, a moderator will decide on its final disposition. Therefore I will let a moderator decide and I am sure if (s)he finds your comment was helpful points will be awarded to you :)

Soryr ignore that again:

>  I would also have expected to indicate that the user could use the ServletOutputStream from the ServletResponse (response object) instead of the implicit JSP "out" variable.

the user already obtains this stream (I think it's time for me to go to bed after so many hours in front of the computer)
