I'm rendering a PDF using the following code: InputStream is = new ByteArrayInputStream(xsltext.getBytes("UTF-8")); StreamSource xslSource = new StreamSource(is); TransformerFactory tfactory = TransformerFactory.newInstance(); Transformer transformer = tfactory.newTransformer(xslSource); FopFactory fopFactory = FopFactory.newInstance(); FOUserAgent foUserAgent = fopFactory.newFOUserAgent(); foUserAgent.setProducer(this.getClass().getName()); ByteArrayOutputStream out = new ByteArrayOutputStream(); Fop fop = fopFactory.newFop(MimeConstants.MIME_PDF,out); Result res = new SAXResult(fop.getDefaultHandler()); transformer.transform(xmlSource, res); httpResponse.setContentType("application/pdf"); httpResponse.setContentLength(out.size()); httpResponse.getOutputStream().write(out.toByteArray()); httpResponse.getOutputStream().flush(); httpResponse.getOutputStream().close(); This is working fine in Firefox. But in IE 7 the pdf does not get rendered. I read somewhere that adding ext=.pdf to the URL might work. Well it's working, but I have to refresh the page before it appears in IE. Is there a way to make the pdf appear automatically in IE without having to refresh the page?
