I am trying to download a file from the server to the client. My UI is EXT-GWT and the framework used is Spring framework. The file type is pdf. I need to file client to be able to save the file at any desired location....meaning I need the windows explorer box to pop up on the client side. Please advise.
Currently I am using the request builder and building the url to go to the controller and access the file and putting it in the response output stream. But it has not worked so far. any suggestions are welcome.
