How to overwrite HTTP HEADER in a servlet

  Asked By: Bakir    Date: Dec 28    Category: Java    Views: 1495

I have a servlet which streams out to show doc or ppt in a browser .How can i force the browser to show it without that prompt every time asks user what to do( open or save)
I set my header this way

response.setHeader("Content-Type" , "application/msword; name=" + fileName
response.setHeader("Content-Length" , new Long(lenght).toString() );

response.setHeader("Content-Disposition" , "inline; filename=" + fileName +)

but it doesnt work
Does anybody have any idea?

usually the problem occures when you touch the response  before setting the header. I mean you got to do this settings before ANY change in the response or the API will ignore it.
