I am looking for a functionality wherein user should be able to save multiple files to the disk without being prompted with 'Save As' multiple times.


1. user adds five items to download in his list of items.
2. user should be prompted for the download location only once.
3. all the files should get downloaded to the client machine location selected by the user.

the application has been written in java using struts. so am looking for solution using jsp, servlets, javascript, flash etc.

    Hi jdpositive,

    The file confirmation dialog is controlled from the browser so you cannot disable it through scripting.  Your better bet would be to zip the selections and have the user download the zip archive.
