Defaulting the filename of a PDF

I am using structs and iText to generate a pdf and write to a response stream. I had set the content-disposition as inline so that the pdf will be displayed directly in the browser. The user will have the option to save the pdf. When I click save, the default filename given in the save option is the servlet or action name. How can I change the default filename to specific value like "file.pdf"?

I want the PDF to be displayed inline first, than the user can choose to save a copy. When they press save, how can I specify the default filename? In order to display on the same window, I am using
Content-Disposition: inline; filename=file.pdf

when they click save, you could open up a php window which sends the file as an attachment directly through the header, that's the only thing i can suggest
