    content disposition with attachment doesnt work for AJAX response

    Sudharma Puranik Newbie

      The problem for me is pretty straight forward. Onclick of an anchor tag , I execute a javascript using a4j:jsFunction and the action of  this function should stream an XML file from server. The problem is , the stream sent on richfaces response doesnt give a saveAs dialog but instead renders the xml on the browser. After reading many articles I understood that Ajax response cannot give a saveAs Dialog.

       

      xhtml snippet:

       

      <h:form>
             
      <a4j:jsFunction name="updateCart" reRender="idFavouritePanel">
                 
      <a4j:actionparam name="jsonObject" assignTo="#{archiveOrderBean.jsonObject}"/>
             
      </a4j:jsFunction>

              
      <a4j:jsFunction  name="download" reRender="partTableId" action="#{archiveOrderBean.loadSelectedOrder}">
                 
      <a4j:actionparam name="strId" assignTo="#{archiveOrderBean.strId}"  />
             
      </a4j:jsFunction>
      </h:form>

       

      and the response from bean

       

       

       
      response.setContentType("application/xml");
                          response
      .setContentLength(byteArr.length);
                          response
      .addHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + attr.getUrl());
      //                  writer.write(byteArr.toString());
      //                  writer.flush();
                          response
      .getOutputStream().write(byteArr);
                          response
      .getOutputStream().flush();
                         
      // post(trueStr,encPath,encUrl,trueStr,response);
                         
      FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().responseComplete();

       

      any help in this regard will be really helpful.
