try this,.,


res.setContentType("application/pdf");
ServletOutputStream out = res.getOutputStream();

//The filename is passed in as a parameter;
String sFileName = (String)req.getParameter("filename");

// Override the filename for testing.
sFileName="myReport.pdf";

try {
File file = new File(sFileName);

byte[] byteContents = new byte[(int)file.length()];

FileInputStream in = new FileInputStream(sFileName);

// Read the file.
int retcd = in.read(byteContents);

// Read past end of file.
// retcd = in.read(byteContents);

in.close();

out.write(byteContents);
out.flush();
out.close();


res.setContentType("application/pdf");
//res.setStatus(res.SC_OK);
return;
}
catch (Exception e)
{
System.out.println(">>>> srvletDownloadPDF exception: " + e);
//res.sendError(HttpServletResponse.SC_INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR,e.toString());
return;
}

I have found this code ... can it be useful ?

<code>
import java.io.*;
import javax.print.*;
import javax.print.attribute.*;
import javax.print.attribute.standard.*;

public class Print {

public Print()
{}

public static void main(String[] args)
{
// PrintDoc is an implementation of Doc
Doc pdoc = new PrintDoc("file.ps");

// Gets the format of the document
DocFlavor flavor = pdoc.getDocFlavor();

// Creates a new attribute set
PrintRequestAttributeSet aset = new HashPrintRequestAttributeSet();

// Locates default printer to print the specified document format
// with the specified attribute set
PrintService service = PrintServiceLookup.lookupDefaultPrintService();

if (service != null) {
DocPrintJob job = service.createPrintJob();

try {
job.print(pdoc, aset);
}
catch (PrintException pe) { }
}
}
}

class PrintDoc implements Doc {
private String filename;
private InputStream stream;

public PrintDoc(String fname)
{
this.filename = fname;
}
public DocFlavor getDocFlavor() {
return DocFlavor.INPUT_STREAM.AUTOSENSE;
}

// No attributes attached to this Doc - mainly useful for MultiDoc
public DocAttributeSet getAttributes() {
return null;
}

// Since the data is to be supplied as an InputStream delegate
// to getStreamForBytes().
public Object getPrintData() throws IOException {
return getStreamForBytes();
}

// Not possible to return as text
public Reader getReaderForText() throws UnsupportedEncodingException, IOException {
return null;
}

// Return the print data as an InputStream.
// Always return the same instance.
public InputStream getStreamForBytes() throws IOException {
synchronized(this) {
if (stream == null) {
stream = new FileInputStream(filename);
}
return stream;
}
}
}

I have :

byte[] buf = new byte[2048];
                int nread = 0;
                 while (-1!=(nread=in.read(buf)))
                 {
                   outf.write(buf, 0, nread);
                 }

May be there is some way to find out that file has to be read as 1024 ????

it does not really make a diff for you to read it in 1028 chunks or 2048 chunks...
both shd be working....

you can use, nread.available() method to find out the available bytes to read...

Kudleep,

Please more details. :) I know you are busy but please.

Thank you.

KuldeepchaturvediCommented:
you can read your stream in different ways...

one can be
//read one byte at a time

byte buf = new byte[2048];
                int nread = 0;
                 while (-1!=(buf=in.read()))
                 {
                   outf.write(buf);
                 }
//slow but reliable

you can read all at one time
byte[] buf = new byte[in.available()];
                int nread = in.available();
                 outf.write(buf, in.read(buf), nread);
                 }

//fast but some times jumps if the stream is not ready by the time we execute in.available();

or you can read in it chucks of 1 K

byte[] buf = new byte[2048];
                int nread = 0;
                 while (-1!=(nread=in.read(buf)))
                 {
                   outf.write(buf, 0, nread);
                 }

so its up to you..
I usually use the first one becoz its most reliable

Hi Kudeep,

This is great :

byte[] buf = new byte[in.available()];
                int nread = in.available();
                 outf.write(buf, in.read(buf), nread);
                 }

How I can do delay 1 sec here before ...because it looks like it is too fast ?
And ...shouldit be while here ? or } just a typo ?

Thank you very much.

KuldeepchaturvediCommented:
don't need a why here because we are reading everything available on the stream in one go....:-)
putting a 1 sec delay ruines the whole gain that you get in the performance so I do not suggest that....

iT SEEMS that stream is not ready by the time we execute in.available :( ???? What is next ?

KuldeepchaturvediCommented:
Have you tried other two variations that I have written???
0
 
fpoyavoAuthor Commented:
Yep.

The first one gave me : Incompatible type for declaration. Can't convert byte[] to byte.
in byte buf = new byte[2048];

The second one gives error opening pdf from jsp and if I do it directly.

The third one the I used and process fine pdfs that have 2048 when I have byte[2048] but those having 1024 message "damaged file" is displayed.
WheN I change it to byte[1024] it process fine pdfs with 1024 but has problem with those having 2048.

Please help.

Is there way to find out if file has 1024 or  2048 ?

fpoyavoAuthor Commented:
Rama,

I got this : Undefined variable or class name: file
                byte[] byteContents = new byte[(int)file.length()];
pointing to file.length ????

fpoyavoAuthor Commented:
Ok...It writes file but due to errors it cannot be opened.

KuldeepchaturvediCommented:
All the time I was thinking that you are getting the file from a URL..!! and not from disk....

fpoyavoAuthor Commented:
You are right I am getting it from URL but I used your technique Kudleep (thank you for this) and works fine for URL or regular file.
Rama was close because the only thing I have missed was close files and trying to open them again later in my logic.

Thank you bro.
