JSP response while setting error

I'm using the below JSP code to write a file back to the end user.

<html>
<head>
<title>Goto</title>
</head>
<body>
<% 
 ....	   
 IDfSysObject sysObj = (IDfSysObject) session1.getObject(new DfId("09001eab80002993"));
 String strFileName = sysObj.getObjectName();
 String strFileExtension = sysObj.getFormat().getDOSExtension();

 if(!strFileName.endsWith("." + strFileExtension))
 {
 strFileName = strFileName + "." + strFileExtension;
 }

 ByteArrayInputStream bais = sysObj.getContent();
 response.setContentType("application/x-download");
 response.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + strFileName);


 int flength = bais.available();
 ByteArrayOutputStream ostream = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
 for(int i=0;i<flength;i++)
 {
 ostream.write(bais.read());
 }

 ostream.writeTo(response.getOutputStream());
 response.getOutputStream().flush();
 response.getOutputStream().close();
%>
</body>
</html>

This works fine but gives the below error in the log file -

Are there some corrections needed in the code?

Thank you

You're lucky you have an exception, as that code is wrong. You need to read (carefully) the api docs for InputStream.available. You can't use it to get the content length. You need to read the stream until EOF. See http://technojeeves.com/joomla/index.php/free/51-copying-streams and copyStream. The ByteArrayOutputStream is redundant - just copy directly to the response's output stream.

IDfSysObject should probably have a method to get the size on the file system, i'd guess, in which case, you could set the Content-Length header.
