Yep. Write transformed CSV file to temp dir and then open it from there via Internet Explorer (this is all has to be done within JSP)

i KNOW you are the best. Thank you.

try
      {
      tFactory = TransformerFactory.newInstance();
      transformer = tFactory.newTransformer(new StreamSource(new File(your xsl file));
      StringWriter sw = new StringWriter();
      transformer.transform(new StreamSource(new File(your xml file)),
                          new StreamResult(sw));

            System.out.println("transformed");
            out.print(sw.toString()); // this will send the data to the Browser directly..
      }catch(Exception e)
      {
            e.printStackTrace();
            out.print("Got errors transforming");
      }

Now in here I am sending the out put of transformation directly to the browser...
you can direct to a file just by changing
line
transformer.transform(new StreamSource(new File(your xml file)),
                          new StreamResult(new File(your destination file));

One question. If I run this JSP on Linux and need to open it as Excel file how exactly it ca ne accomplished ?
I assume this code will just print it in browser nto open it as Excel file. Right ? May be I am missing something ?

you will have to set your content type to application/excel by doing

response.setContentType("application/excel");
