I am working on a web application. which is deployed on a websphere application server 6.0.
In my application a back end job generates a pdf file based on the user input. The file is genrated and placed on server. I get a logical path to access the file. This path is then indeed sent to a jsp page where it represents in form of link for user to open. If the client browser is mozila or safari, the file opens correctly. However, user do not get the same result if the browser is IE (6 or 7) . As the file is on server it do not shows a error page and tries to open the file and here the browser shows garbage data on the screen.
The attached code is for the path which I get from the server and then tries to access the link.
I have also tried using sendredirect on the servlet and window.open on the jsp page.
