Hi,

I need to open documents (MS Word, powerpoint, excel etc..) in my webpage (jsp). The code below works but the all the documents open mixed with junk chars..

   String p = "C:\\tomcat5\\webapps\\TMN\\Despesas.xls";
//     String p = "C:\\tomcat5\\webapps\\TMN\\motivacao.doc";
   
   boolean ok = true;
   ok = p!=null;
   if (ok) {
      if (p.indexOf(".html")>-1) {
         response.setContentType("text/html");
      } else if (p.indexOf(".gif")>-1) {
         response.setContentType("image/gif");
      } else if (p.indexOf(".pdf")>-1) {
         response.setContentType("application/pdf");
      } else if (p.indexOf(".doc")>-1) {
         response.setContentType("application/msword");
      } else if (p.indexOf(".xls")>-1) {
         response.setContentType("application/excel");            
      } else {
         ok = false;
      }
   }
   if (ok) {
      try {
         int l = (int) new File(p).length();
         response.setContentLength(l);
         byte[] b = new byte[l];
         FileInputStream f = new FileInputStream(p);
         f.read(b);
         ServletOutputStream o = response.getOutputStream();
         o.write(b,0,l);
         o.flush();
         o.close();
         f.close();
      } catch (Exception e) {
         ok = false;
      }
   }
   if (!ok) {
      response.sendError(HttpServletResponse.SC_BAD_REQUEST);
   }

How can I resolve this ?

TIA,
