ServletOutputStream out = response.getOutputStream();
            response.setContentType("application/x-download");
            String rowid=(String)request.getParameter("id");
            String fileName=(String)request.getParameter("filename");
            response.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + fileName); // fileName ="ABCD EFGH IJKL.xls"
            DownloadUtil dutil =new DownloadUtil();
            byte[] excelbyte=dutil.getFile(rowid);
            out.write(excelbyte);


            the downloaded file comes as ABCD without any extension.

            but if there were no spaces in the filename , the downloaded files comes with the filename as it was.

            so, how to ignore space in the filename ?
