    Seam 2.0.2.SP1 - Jasper Report Integration problem

    Darryl Sibeon Newbie

      Hey everyone,

      I am working on a rather large project using jboss seam and recently we have upgraded to Seam 2.0.2.SP1.  Everything went smoothly except for the report generation.  The class DocType is no longer included in the project, it has been changed for DocumentType. 

      We changed our DocType.PDF to new DocumentType(pdf, application/pdf).  The reports are being generated correctly, but in Firefox 3.0 they are opened in the save dialogue instead of the imbedded reader (we have checked the configurations in the browser) also in Internet Explorer the file doesn't open nor save. 

      Below is the example of the report generator we use, the only mod we made in the new code was adding the new DocumentType as cited above. 

      All our report classes extend this class, an example of thiss is also posted below. 

      Any ideas as to why these reports aren´t opening in the browser would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks in advance!!
